Oh Comely Magazine

Oh Comely magazine has arrived! A very shiny, new magazine, full of beautiful and quirky things, and I've been busy illustrating away for their first issue. I was asked to illustrate their feature about guerilla gardening. A project I enjoyed very much.  They dug a little garden in the middle of a street in London and filled it with flowers (I have yet to see it) but the pictures look lovely)

The also sent me a tote bag and some stickers with tea pots on!
You can buy the magazine at WHSmith or from the website for £4
Much love and many thanks to the wonderful Liz, Des, Dani and the team at Oh Comely! I'm gutted I missed the launch party, but I'll be there next time :)

Newcastle University Fine Art Show

I went along to the Fine Art show at Newcastle University last night, there was some very interesting stuff! (Some of it a bit 'out there' but definitely worth a look at).

I discovered a fellow Craft Mafia members work at the exhibition - some very lovely birds by Amy Frampton I love that the birds were coloured with felt tip, it must've taken hours!

Also liked this ladder installation with the birdy on the top... am noticing a slight theme to this years show...

I really like this artist, but i can't remember their name.

I love that its so chaotic

Northumbria Fashion Show @ The Baltic

I took a few photos from the Northumbria Fashion show last week at the Baltic.  I had a pretty good seat but my camera was misbehaving and most of my pictures have come out a bit rubbish :( I'll get some better ones in London

Ballad Of Magazine: Bailey 'Busta' Button

The brand new issue of Ballad Of magazine is here and it's gorgeous! It's always a beautiful magazine, full of lovely things, and this issue features me! I absolutely love the concept of this issue:  'I remember when...' it conjures up all kinds of ideas of nostalgia, childhood memories and faraway dreams. 

Much love to the wonderful editors - Lindsey and Claire, they've done an amazing job! Everyone go buy it

Everyone meet my darhhlinng sister Steph. She is graduating from Northumbria in Fashion this year, she makes amazing crazy shaped clothes. I've made her a snazzy website

Web design isn't really my forte (so much for my degree in Multimedia ha)- so a huuge thanks to my friend Dan for sorting out my html when it went awry

Graduate Fashion Lookbook (Northumbria 2010)

So! I can finally reveal my big project I've been working super hard on for the last couple of weeks!

I was asked to design this years graduate brochure for the Fashion Design course at Northumbria University (aah my old uni... good times). There are 76 students graduating this year, so you can imagine, trying to organise 76 students portfolio images was quite a mission and a half! The book is 162 pages - and its quite a heavy book, the printers have done an amazing job, I especially love that it's bound with screws.  This was such a good project to work on, I'm so happy with how it's turned out.

This is my v talented sister, Steph - she's graduating this year. I'm ever so proud! Her collection will be amazing (and as I helped cut out about a million triangles, she's promised me free stuff when she finished it woo!) (

These are a couple of personal favourite pages of mine.... Some gorgeous illustrations... Holly Farrar, Helen Stewart, Angharad Griffiths (

My phone's camera is really quite bad :( I'll get some better pics later.

I must say a huuuge thank you to Sara for organising everything, this would probably be a half empty book without her! (

I'm very excited for the catwalk show - the Northumbria show is this Tuesday, 18th May at The Baltic art gallery in Gateshead -  it's going to be be amazinggg!

Hopefully I'll make it down to London for graduate fashion week in June too, the brochures are going to be blown up to A2 sized for the display!
