Oops! My Dog x Hannah Evelyn Rowlands




Here is the first product that I illustrated for Oops! My Dog in South Korea! They are a lovely online pet store for all things canine. What better collaboration?! The first item up is this pet toy hanger/clothes peg hanger if you’re British. You can buy it here if you’re in Korea. In the UK Pet London stocks Oops! My Dog items too. There are going to be more pet related items illustrated by me coming soon I believe so that’s exciting. They wanted to feature photos of my working in my flat for their site too – if anyone can read Korean please tell me what it says. Hopefully it’s nice :)



Drawing dogs for Boden – Johnnie B t-shirt


dogs_boden
Another t-shirt I illustrated for Boden is now in the shops. Hooray! This might be my favourite one yet, but that’s maybe a no brainer because it includes lots of dogs. The design was inspired by my Drawing For Dogs project – in which I raised over £1500 for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. For Boden I included Johnnie Boden’s own pup Sprout in the design :)
You can buy the shirt here. (It’s in the teenage range but age 16 fits a size 10-12 – if you like this kinda thing!)

#The100DayProject | 100 Days Of Sketchbook


I decided that I would have a go at #The100DayProject a couple of days ago. My project is 100 days of using a sketchbook. The main reason being, is that I’m a little non committal with them! I buy loads, use them a lot at first and then end up with 100’s of half full ones… (you should see under my desk). Anyway, I thought this would push me to draw in the same one every single day. It’s also been a while since I did any ‘personal’ work – just for me, for fun. It’s nice to make time to draw whatever I fancy.

You can follow me on Instagram here where I am posting daily!

Please let me know if you are taking part and link me to your social accounts if you are :)

Fashion dolls by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Paris

These photos by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Paris December/January 2014-2015 are the best I’ve seen in forever! I wrote my dissertation at university on dolls and hyperreality as I used to be completely obsessed with the world of fashion dolls. I love the idea behind this photoshoot, you really have to double take on some of them. I think it’s perfect how you really cannot tell what is life size, real or a prop/editing. To me these photos represent the magic in fashion photography, and what is fun about fashion. The detail is also incredible and the styling is spot on. There is not one photo in the set that I don’t like!

Yoshitomo Nara – Greetings from a Place in My Heart


room
drawing_naraentranceYoshitomo Nara has been one of my favourite artists for a long time. I love his childlike girls and boys looking wistful, smoking cigarettes or just being generally sassy. And lets not forget his dogs with their cheeky expressions. He’s been a huge inspiration for me over the years but I don’t think until this exhibition I’d actually seen any of his work IRL! From October 3rd till 7th December this incredible exhibition is on at the Dairy Art Centre. Not massively promoted, I thankfully heard about it in time on Twitter. I was blown away when I got there and saw the vast quantity of work on show! There are over 200 pieces on display.
