Lisbon Sketches

Here's some sketches from a recent trip to Lisbon. See the rest on my Instagram stream.

Stylist Magazine

We were recently asked to create a collection of Felt Mistress characters by Stylist magazine to model shoes and bags for their special Fashion issue. Here's my original sketches (all characters were to be furry and brightly coloured. Louise chose all the fabric first and we took it from there) and below are some of the pages from the shoot featuring Louise's finished Felt Mistress creatures. Thanks to Alexandra Fullerton and Tom Gormer for directing the shoot (and having the idea to commission us to work on such an enjoyable project) and thanks to Omer Knaz for the fantastic photography. It was a joy to see someone taking so much pride in their work and paying so much attention to detail.

Plants!

Spent a lot of time over the last few weeks drawing plants. The more complicated the better. Lots of fascinating shapes and negative space to draw.
