If I could blame anyone for my fingers that constantly itch to draw it would probably be my mother. I was going to join her on trip to Marrakech, Morrocco last weekend with some friends (definitely one of our favourite cities to sketch!) But I'm in San Francisco until September, I will be careful not to complain..
She just sent me a couple of quick biro and water colour drawings she did out there, which I love so much I thought I'd put them up on here!
Just to provide some background info: My mum (Helen) works as a Garden Designer and Writer, and contributes to Gardener's World as well as running her own Garden Design business, formerly known as Front Door Flora. She's previously worked as a Graphic Designer and Freelance Illustrator.. Oh and did I mention be a full-time mother?!
Needless to say she's a big inspiration, but I'd like to think she copies me too ;)

As I've mentioned probably too many times already, I am working as a Design Intern at Old Navy in San Francisco, California this Summer! The department where I'm based is Babies and Toddlers which I'm having a fantastic time at. Over the weeks I've been here, I've been developing characters to inform some design concepts for 2012. Without revealing too much I thought I'd post a couple of the characters I invented!

Old Navy kindly lent me a couple of Japanese Fashion Magazines to refer to! I loved the photoshoots so much I did my own interpretations of some of my fave looks, which I'll post over the course of this week!

Kingston Graduates at Graduate Fashion Week (being a 2nd Yr Fashion Student myself) I loved the show and personal highlights were Patricia Pereira da Costa (view earlier posts to see full illustrated collection) and Bethany Borough (pictured second from bottom) to view all the graduate's Final Collections, Arts Thread has a beautiful archive of all of their portfolios!

Since I illustrated for Laura Fantacci of Red Magazine's wedding, I have been offered a number of wedding illustration assignments! It's lovely to be asked to capture something so personal and I'm really looking forward to future wedding commissions for this year. Last week I was privately commissioned for Petro of Look Magazine to do an illustration of him and his wife for their 1st anniversary which is pictured above! From the photos I gather it must have been another beautiful day.
