Beauty Illustrations for Stylist Magazine

I'm a massive fan of the weekly, London magazine, Stylist.  So was delighted when they got in contact last week looking for some beauty illustrations.  As part of a feature on skin sensitivity,   they wanted three small illustrations showing how you can check if your skin is sensitive against everyday products.

It was a quick turn-around, which I guess goes hand-in-hand with weekly magazines.  But really pleased with the final artwork.  Thanks Stylist!!

Illustrations for Claire's Accessories

Before Christmas, I was asked to create a few illustrations for Claire's Accessories.  They wanted me to paint their jewellery, as well as a few of their silicon phone covers.  The phone covers are so bright and comical, it seems like quite a removal from my normal work, but I'm pleased with them nonetheless.

What do you think?

Editorial Illustrations for German Wings

If you're flying with German Wings over the festive period, have a look at the in-flight magazine.  You'll find a 5-page article illustrated by moi, "Spaß im Schnee", or "Fun in the Snow". I was asked to mix my illustrations with photography, showing alternative activities in the snow.  It was good to do something a little different.

Here's the magazine, and a better look at the images:

Links of London PR dinner - illustrated table settings

Last month I was contacted by Links of London to create some inky portraits for their #linksoflondontime dinner; a luxurious dining event at The National Portrait Gallery to celebrate Links' latest watch collection.

I was asked to draw portraits for 13 attendees, which would be used on their table settings.  I also hand lettered their names. A lovely idea.  Here's a few of my favourites (you'll notice that there's some men in there too.  See! I don't just draw ladies.)

 

Some of the guests were pretty pleased with their portraits and shared them on Instagram.  It was fun to see them being posted throughout the evening, I felt like I was there! Thanks to everyone for the lovely pictures.

Fashion Illustrations for River Island X Zoë Jordan

Once in a while a great commission comes along. And this is one! Fashion illustration commissions don't come along that often, so when River Island got in touch to ask if I could create fashion illustrations for their latest designer collaboration with Zoë Jordan, I was delighted. 

The actual collection is top secret (of course!) until it launches with a short film during London Fashion Week at the British Fashion Council's Fashion Film event.  So, River Island wanted to use illustration to whet people's appetites.   I created three illustrations that give a flavour of the collection but don't too much away.  Of course it meant that I was given a privileged access to the new collection and to the official photography.  Squee! 

You'll see my artwork being distributed as part of the PR campaign and they've already been spotted in a number of online magazines including Vogue.  

The Zoë Jordan X River Island Design Forum collection will be available in store and online at Riverisland.com in September.
