Lowie

Check out this interview with Lowie's founder Bronwyn Lowenthal. Lowie specialises in beautiful dresses and cute playsuits. They use the finest soft wools, luxurious organic cottons and eco-friendly leathers with minimal chemicals used in the tanning process. 

I was asked by Amelia Gregory to illustrate some pieces that she sent me.. some culottes (these) and a military styled jacket (similar to this one). They were such lovely garments to draw. I chose a simple neutral colour palette and displayed the Lowie logo in the background along with one of their signature satchels, this one to be precise.

What do you think?!


Available to buy from the Lowie website over here.

Recent submission work

A recent work for a magazine that has been discontinued but I thought It would be nice to share my work anyway.

The theme was VERSUS. Each issue was centred around a different theme, with contributing artists and writers submitting a piece of work accompanied by a musical track of their choice.

Like follows:
Select a piece of music that fits your interpretation of the theme - 'versus'. Develop a graphical or written piece to accompany your choice of track. This can be as literal, or as abstract as you like. The important thing is that it can be represented in print (colour, or B&W). 








And the final piece..

Toulouse Lautrec exhibition

We went to Cardiff Museum to see the new exhibition there of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec prints entitled High Kicks & Low Life. I highly recommend it. There isn't an enormous amount of prints (I wanted to see more) but his work is really lovely. I liked his posters the best. Lovely exhibition.

Most of T-L's work was printed using lithography. Here is a great article explaining it.
