Cadaqués – Salvador Dalí House

Way back when, the summer before last, I visited Cadaqués in Spain. Even though it was a while ago now, I can remember so vividly how blue & white everything looked – it felt like such a fresh place to be and very relaxing. As well as the beauty of the place it’s also the location of Salvador Dali’s home which is open for anyone to visit.

It was truly amazing, left just as it was. Some of my favourite parts were the giant bear upon entrance, the art studio with old paints in the original packaging and the bedroom was very elaborately decorated too. The outside space was also incredible, including the big eggs everywhere and the giant phallic water feature… I would never have said I was a huge fan of Dali’s work but after visiting his home my interest was definitely piqued!

Fundació Joan Miró – Barcelona

Hello, hello, is anybody out there?! A lot of the time real life is more fun than the internet, when things get busy it’s good to live in the moment and not update your online presence… ya dig? ~ mindfulness ~ etc. etc. Anyway, hello July! Hello blog! Jeez this year has flown by. ANYWAY…

Last month I went to Barcelona, and had a mini road trip up to Cadaqués (next post!). One of the first places we visited was the Joan Miro museum, located at the top of an amazing hill in Montjuïc, Barcelona. It was super fun and colourful. The architecture of the museum is very ‘Bauhaus’ & extremely similar to the Bauhaus-Archiv in Berlin (also an incredible place if you love concrete as much as I do!) The Miro museum is much cleaner, feels lighter and more airy though. I wish I could live in a building like this.

The place is filled with amazing drawings, sketches (all by Miro) and also a very cool bar and two awesome museum shops.

Mouse t-shirt at Boden

Here are some animal illustrations of mine that are currently used in Boden’s Spring 2016 collection for teenage girls. It’s so fun seeing my work on t-shirts that are being modelled and styled. I was so excited to see the DOG PAJAMAS(!) too. How cute are they! 16 yr old size totally fits a size 10 ;)

Admittedly all the Boden kids clothes make me want a baby just to dress up… There are so many amazing cute patterns and designs, especially the little dinky dresses and rompers.

Autumn horse drawing

People say a horse is the hardest thing to draw. I don’t think that’s true… I think buildings with lots of windows are harder, or people. But my horse might be really short and not very anatomically correct. Anyway, here is a girl horse I drew for Autumn, I quite like her.
