Copycats

Monday, July 27, 2009
I've had a bit of a disheartening weekened that has made me question the whole concept of sharing my work on the internet. Thankfully, I'm in better spirits now and have come to the conclusion that without all of the lovely readers and communities this whole situation wouldn't have been brought to my attention in the first place so there is no way I'm going to let this stop me!


I was emailed by Nina (who has a fabulous blog by the way) who alerted me to a shop in Sweden called Lagerhaus, which is selling products with blatant copies of my illustrations on them.

They say that imitation is like flattery but when you're in that situation yourself it's very hard to see it that way! So I'm taking action as I type but if anyone has any other pointers they would be most appreciated :)

A big thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support too, it has restored my faith! xxx

Chuffed!

Friday, July 24, 2009
I'm having a "chuffed" moment as I logged onto Net-a-Porter this morning to find some shoes to draw I spotted what I had eagerly been anticipating since last year....
I was overjoyed to be asked to design an illustration for Marc by Marc Jacobs and here it is on a tshirt!

And I love the way they've styled it too (plus the little "you might like" suggestions such as this A.P.C cardi, Alex Monroe necklace & Louboutins)

Sorry for the lack of posting recently, I've been a busy bee and cannot wait to sit down and do nothing for a while! Just a few more weeks...

Guardian of Givenchy

Tuesday, July 14, 2009
The Tower of London is famous for the ravens that reside there. Reportedly the legend goes that if the ravens ever leave the White Tower, the monarchy and the entire kingdom would fall.


The Guardian of Givenchy operates in much the same way

Say Cheese!

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

I've taken to collecting old cameras recently but I've only just gotten around to actually trying them out. The results were a bit hit and miss, but I think that's the fun of it!

I'm having a play around with my blog layout so it may look a little bit strange for a while (given that I don't really know what I'm doing!)

Bear with me :)
