Firsts: Published Illustrations

I’m really excited about this next milestone:  I’ve had some of my illustrations published!  I’ve mentioned The Skinny before, a local independent arts/fashion/music/entertainment paper.  It’s really informative as to what’s going on in Edinburgh & Glasgow.

Each fashion season they send a team to London Fashion Week to see and review the shows.  For the Autumn/Winter 2012-13 shows in February, the review featured some of my illustrations for their March publication!

I got the chance to illustrate some really lovely designs from some of my favourite labels:
bora aksu

Bora Aksu

JW Anderson

J.W. Anderson

Eudon Choi

Sophie Hulme

Mark Fast

Mark Fast (one of my FAVE knitwear designers!)


Unique by Topshop

We had a tight deadline so a few of the illustrations were a bit rushed, but the overall experience was fab, and a great learning opportunity as well.  I’m really enjoying illustration & hope to find time to explore and experiment further…
