playtime11img_7184b photo-3-560x420I recently did some work for Lapin & Me, illustrating lots of toys. Here are some of my illustrations on pillows, mirrors, an advent calendar and cards displayed at Lapin & Me’s stand at Playtime Paris.

Paris pt. 2 – Deyrolle and Blueberry sushi

IMG_4620
We visited Deyrolle which is an amazing shop in Paris! You can buy all the taxidermy in there. They had a giraffe, a polar bear and other big bears, if you had over 20k of euros to spend, this is the place! They have drawers and drawers of beetles, bugs and butterflies that you can select and get put in beautiful boxes too.

(I got told off for taking photos… iphone photos i’m afraid! Would have loved to have photographed EVERYTHING in there!)

Earlier in the week we watched Jiro Dreams Of Sushi which is an incredible documentary based around sushi master Jiro Ono who is still running his business of amazing Michelin Star sushi at the age of 85! It is very inspiring and also made us hungry for Sushi.

I read about Blueberry Maki Bar online and it was in the top 10 reviewed restaurants out of nearly 10,000 on Trip Adviser so we visited! It did not disappoint. The food was perfect, and I don’t really even like sushi..

Feeling rather drunk and full of food we rode the metro back to near our hotel.

You know you’re a designer/illustrator when the thing that excites you the most in this museum is the style guide. Oh god. LOVE. The colour palettes are also designed based on the most famous paintings in their collection. Amazing!DSC_3203 DSC_3205 DSC_3208
Afterwards we ate delicious nutella, banana, strawberry and cream filled pancakes!
