unicorndaddyboden50sdoggy-2

I am so excited! This week two of the t-shirts I designed for Boden were released in their Johnnie B AW14′ range! You can buy them HERE. (Age 16 is about an adult size 10/12!). The dog and the unicorn were illustrated by me. I am so happy they released the unicorn design as that was my favourite that I did for them. I did 4 other designs too, so perhaps they will be released at some point in the future. Above are some of the original drawings, hope you like them!

What I wore today – Sunday Underground day

dress
I actually managed to get some photos of an outfit for the first time in… um ages?

So here is what I wore last Sunday – a trip to the closed underground station Aldwych (more on that soon – lots of photos to share!)

Dress: Mix tile print from Topshop
Boots: Dr Martens Faun Patent Chelsea boots (in the sale here!) I’ve worn these so much since I got them last year and they are still in perfect condition.
Sunglasses: Modern Cat Eye Sunglasses from Forever 21 – So cheap £4.50!
Collar: Mock shirt collar from COS (I don’t think they have it anymore but you can probably find on eBay. Or you can just wear a normal shirt underneath – H&M always do sleeveless ones.)

My work space/desk! – A peek into my home.

I love seeing other people’s work areas/desks/studios/bedrooms, so here are some photos of mine. I was asked to do this a few weeks ago for a friends website, and only got round to it so thought I’d post them here too!
I don’t have a studio or a spare room to work in (London rent is already bloody enough) so use half my bedroom as a working area for my illustration work/drawing/photoshop marathons. I LOVE toys.. and do collect them. I have a few vintage Fisher Price wheeled animals and lots of Lapin & Me toys as I’ve drawn them quite a lot for the shop in the past year. pens

I found this Kewpie in a bin on Kingsland Road! Haha, I did have to wash it a lot, god only knows what it was covered in… The silver lamp above is Ikea and I love it.

I do try and change the pictures here up a bit, I don’t tend to put much illustration up as I prefer photos, paintings or bits of design (doing illustration kind of makes you sick of looking at other illustration and I also think it’s best if you don’t!). But I do have some vintage illustration bits up, alongside two recent artists Nathalie Lete and Yoshitomo Nara because they are two of my all time favourites. Also I’ve got a few bits of Ana Albero’s work stuck up, an illustrator from Berlin who’s work I really like.pink
A cute little pen I got from Berlin & below some MT tapes. (I LOVE STATIONARY, especially Japanese!). tape

So there we go, where I spend quite a bit of time! I hope you liked this sneaky peek of my flat!
