Foale & Tuffin

I have just finished this illustration for Amelia's Magazine. It was for an interview with Marion Foale of Foale and Tuffin, a legendary Sixties knitwear label.

The article is great and you should definitely go and read it here!

I really enjoyed this piece. The clothing was quite simple so I worked with the accent colours in the dress to produce quite a bold piece. I think it works well because the dress really stands out against the bold colour of the background. Here it is!

I've also just finished another piece for Amelia's Magazine, which is yet to go live. When it is I will be sure to post it here!

As well as this, I have emailing various ethical designers to see if i could do an interview with them and do some illustrations of their work to use in my final year work. So far, I have had positive responses from 5 of the 10 I contacted! I am so pleased, some even sent me photos to work from and asked if they could use the images in return when I have finished.

I had another designer, who found me through Amelia's Magazine, ask me if I would like to illustrate some of their pieces. Exciting stuff! :)

Lots going on! Today I am finishing an illustration to go on the front cover of Craft Guerrilla's zine. I've been given a lot of freedom, with the only restriction being it must be based on winter in some way.

I'm looking forward to sharing all these things when they are done! :)

  1. sweet!
    I can't wait to see amelia's book in print either!

  2. So much talent. I'm thinking of writing a bit in which the characters meet models-now-zombies, and I would love to feature a drawing like this--just with green skin and maybe some sores in place of the living skin.

  3. Ahh i like it! I may be able to give that a go for you soon if you want :)

  4. That'd be brilliant. Thanks!


I would love to know your thoughts! I read and appreciate every comment I receive.
