Today.


This is how today should be spent. With a cup of tea and a magazine (the latest issue of Yen is particularly good - it has a great feature with some chosen illustrators re - imagining fairy tales!). Failing that wrapped up in bed. The start of really cold weather here, darker skies, earlier nights and an ongoing virus has sapped my motivation to finnish off some paintings for the grading coming up in two weeks. It doesn't help that the paintings are  - hmmm what's the right word to use here? - crap? -  and self portraits to boot. I know I should use this free day I have but all I want to do is blog, drink tea and then crawl into bed. Looks like I've made up my mind....

Sounds like a wildly luxurious day of magazine, tea and bed could be just what you need to find your motivation again. Hope you enjoy it. Kellie xx

Yeah, that sounds pretty amazing. It is so rare that we give ourselves those opportunities. You deserve it!

yes, that's how I felt on Tuesday, I called it a non-day and promptly went back to bed to read. I recommend it! Your mojo will return, may as well relax and get motivated vicariously for now :)

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.
