When it comes to inspiring stuff, this christmas has been wonderful. Firstly I got these two wonderful books from my sister:
They're both stunning and I would certainly recommend purchasing them if you're at all interested in pattern or even just illustration.
I received some very beautiful Christmas cards from illustrators this year, it's a privilege to have them up in my home!
The first card on the left is from the very lovely Natasha Thompson. It's so delicate and sweet and just what I'd expect from her, i love! The second, with a very sweet polar bear is from Kayleigh Bluck. It's so cute, I really adore it. The very beautiful robin at the front is from Rachel Price and it's such a gorgeous piece, I love the dashes of colour in it, perfect! Finally the very gorgeous, hand-illustrated fashion piece is from the fabulous Dee Andrews. I feel so honoured to know these girls and have cards from them, check them out they're all fab!
One of the best gifts this year was the arrival of the beautiful Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration. It's simply stunning, I'm so proud! Big well done and thank you to Amelia Gregory! Here are some photos I wanted to share!
Here are some of my pages, I'm so pleased with them! I was completely surprised and excited to be first in there too!
I'm obviously very proud of fellow Tea & Crayons member, Natasha Thompson, whose pages are all stunning!
Also, someone I consider a friend now, the lovely Faye West, check her out too, she's talented and lovely!
I hope you're all having a wonderful new Year! :)
