Everybody meet Diana. My lomography camera! I actually gor her for Christmas but I haven't had chance to blog about it yet.  This is the dreamer edition, its a nice minty green/creamy colour.

I don't have a flash for it yet but for now I'll just practice and play and hopefully take some nice pictures.

I go through phases with photography, and I seem to collect cameras, but lomography suits me because its such a simple little analogue camera, there are no complicated buttons and you can do all kinds of nifty things with it. It came with a book full of lovely photos and history of the camera and things to do so I'm feeling quite inspired.

Jacket inspiration

My darhlinng sister Steph is going to make me a jacket yaay, so I made a little board of some of my fav jackets for some inspiration!

I very much enjoy Haider Ackermanns 09 / 10 collections so we're going for something along the sort of slouchy angular biker jacket type lines. I'm excited!

Inspiration Thursday

Some more inspiration in the form of American graphic artist and illustrator Cherri Wood.  I actually discovered this artist at a gallery I used to work at, I love her rough and inky style, it almost feels unfinished, I would love one of her prints for my walls.

Tea & Crayons illustration challenge

As part of the Tea & Crayons collective, we decided as a fun, little project to start off the new year, we'd illustrate each other! And I illustrated the lovely Natasha (

I know how much she loves pink, so i wanted to incorporate the colour and make it very pretty and soft. Hope you like!

Inspire me Tuesday

As part of my whole keeping new years resolutions I'm going to try and blog more. I like to share some of the things I find online and on my travels, so I thought I'd try and start and post things that interest me on a weekly basis. I dont know whether this'll be every tuesday yet, but probably once a week.  I'll aim for a tuesday.

I'll start with these illustrations by Italian artist Noumeda. I'm extremely fickle when it comes to buying things - I'm easily swayed by the pretty packaging and immediately fell in love with these illustrations when I saw them on a range of hair products by Umberto Giannini.  I use Umberto Giannini products on a semi-regular basis, its just a bonus that now they're so beautifully wrapped with lovely drawings!

Hello 2011

Happy New Year!
It's 2011! Time for a list! Just a few things I will hope to achieve over the next 12 months

1. Draw more - preferably daily.
2. Take more pictures. (I got a Diana F+ for Christmas so I intend to take many many photies this year)
3. Collaborate with interesting people (email me interesting people! Photographers, designers, writers, artists of all types!)
4. Print more. And learn all about textile printing/dyeing
5. Travel more
6. Move to London
7. Get involved with lots more creative things - crafty stalls, exhibitions, competition briefs, blogs etc.
8. Get a kitten!

I probably could go on for a while longer, but these goals seem do-able for now, so wish me luck!
