Illustrated Floral

Sorry that I’be been away folks, Christmas time was manic! Making a fresh start on drawings for my latest live project to design a series of scarves for Liberty of London! Cool or what? Anyway, I decided to look at more analytical drawings, with the added touch of my quirky edge to it. This was drawn from an exotic plant I purchased in Ikea, as my theme is obscure florals this plant fit perfectly. Because the flower was made up of so many shades and tones I really wanted to overexaggerate the colour. Hope you like, let me know what you think!

It’s all in the surface!

One of my final pieces for this module, a printed pencil skirt, very graphic and linear inspired by illustrators as well as fashion designers such as Mary Katrantzou and Alice McCall.

The print was created with a standard black and white surface pattern that was then integrated with a background I designed with bleach and ink. So far one of my best prints to date, really like the contrast against black and colour which is apparent in many designers work such as Peter Pilotto and Clover Canyon who aim to achieve this in their own work.
