Illustration by myself.

I've been completely absent from blogging and pretty poor with illustrating on a regular basis since moving to London in January.
London life is extremely hectic, but also very inspiring as a creative. Anyway, my plan is draw and get creative as much as I possibly can in my spare time...... & update my blog and new illustration Facebook page with my latest stuff... Watch the space!

Even before seeing the Kate Moss shoot for Playboy's 60th Birthday, I knew I was going to be obsessed with it. Kate Moss doesn't do things by halves and she certainly doesn't disappoint.
The legendary fashion photographers Mert and Marcus have captured classic old school Playboy glamour as well as artistic and modern imagery in the editorial.
Each image seems to tell a different story and has its own unique charm.
My illustration is from a photograph from the shoot. This image has been used as a print on Marc Jacobs shirts. Of course, after knowing about this shirt I immediately tried to purchase it, but I can't get it shipped to the UK. I'm almost kind of tempted to get my illustration printed on a tee and wear it instead.
Although this illustration looks very much like Kate Moss, I strangely see an element of Kim Kardashian in it; I think it's possibly the lips.

Well summer is well and truly over, and what better way to get over the summer blues than to buy new bits for the cold months to come.
My new winter essentials:
Monki black lace bra
Black leather platform shoes
& Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation.

Miley Cyrus... NYC shot by Terry Richardson!
I (and the rest of the world) am literally OBSESSED with Miley Cyrus at the moment. I love the controversy that she causes, and I personally am sitting back and enjoying the show.
Illustration and image editing by me.

Certain angles, looks, poses and styles really inspire me, and this is when I seem to create my best! I was playing around with the concept "leather" for an AW13 trend and felt inspired to create this image. I love the simplicity of only using one colour and medium to create this piece. I have also created another piece on this theme, but I believe it might be getting used in the British Mode Magazine's up and coming publication so I am not able to post it on my blog at the moment. That piece in my eyes is my best illustration yet, and I cannot wait to share it on my blog.
I have also recently created some illustrations of Paris Fashion Week catwalk looks that can be found on British Mode Magazine's website.

In regards to my last post about posting a LANVIN illustration. I did create one, but sent it to British Mode Magazine for their website. So if you would like to see my LAVNIN and Christian Dior catwalk illustrations then please check on their website in a few days.

For some reason yesterday I felt massive creative frustration and block. Yesterday showcased so many beautiful collections including two of my favourite brands Balenciaga and Balmin, but when pen came to paper I felt that I some how wasn't creating my best. Hopefully today will make up for yesterday. Also I haven't had the time to illustrate the LANVIN show, but have some great ideas, so will try and get them online by this evening.
