Free Machine Embroidery.

Here is my (unfinnished) first go at Free Machine embroidery. Have wanted to try this for ages but had no idea how. Then went to You Tube and watched a couple of tutorials and voila! It is so much fun (basically drop the feed dog, fix a darning foot (or not) and you're off. It's like drawing but the needle and thread are your pencil). It's going to be a long time before I get sick of this.
PS these are the first photos taken with my Nikon D3000 saved up for on ebay!!!

I tried some the other day and couldn't even get a loop happening. I think I am as talented at this as real drawing so I will leave this to you and put my amaaazing talents elsewhere. xx

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.

Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
