Fabric Print

Hi bloggers, Just thought I would post this textile design that I did quite some time ago now. The base of the design was created in illustrator then taken into photoshop to apply the finer details and slight textures. Hope you like.

Optimist & Pessimist @ Lagom

These little guys are called Optimist and Pessimist. They are from Lagom and are both full of attitude...

Isn't she Gorjuss

I can not tell you how much great stuff there is on the Santoro website. But these Gorjuss products are my favorites. The characters are just illustrated so beautifully and they come on so many great products. Perfect name for the range... Its simply Gorjuss.

Ingela @ Lagom

Ah.. Good Ol' Print and Pattern, again you have lead me on the path of design discovery...

Lagom Design is a UK company with a range of Greeting cards, Furniture, Textiles, Stationery, Gifts and Prints.

I thought these cards were very sweet, the range is called Ingela...

Tea Party Kitchenware

This recipe box and magnetic shopping pad are products I designed at work. I had a lot of fun creating it and adore the brightly coloured teapots and teacups. You can view all of artwraps fantastic products here.

Wedding Stationery

My good friends Caroline and Benn asked me to do their wedding invites for their up and coming April wedding. Cazz has given me some fantastic inspiration and in the next few weeks I hope to have a few concepts to show them. Im really enjoying it so far. Here is the first one. I didn't know which layout I liked better, so let me know what you think...

Imaginism Studios

I know I probably say this every time but you just have to take some time to have a look at the amazing illustrations on Imaginism Studios. I was on there for ages and of course Im posting to you the Alice In wonderland Concept art that Kei Acedera and Bobby Chiu worked on for the brilliant Tim Burton twist of the classic Alice in Wonderland story.

These quirky illos are the work of Bobby Chiu. Can you believe he started his illustration career at 17 years of age designing Disney and Warner Bros Toys.

and these stunning illustrations are just a few from Kei Acedera, who by the way in her spare time enjoys making tiny t-shirts for her guinea pig Tobi. How cute is that :)
