I am so happy that two of my products have been selected to be part of the Blog and Buy summer wish list! This is the first time I have taken part and delighted to be chosen. My mountain notebook and Hello Fox Mug are listed among lots of lovely products, I’m proud to be next to so many talented makers.
Heres a few pictures of my favourite products, the full wish list you can view here.
I went to Bird in Borrowed Feathers Market in Nottingham on the weekend. I had to stop my self from buying everything! Lucky the boyfriend was there to keep reminding me I need to find a job before I can actually afford all these things :( However I did get these beautiful brooch by Amy Blackwell . I stupidly forgot to take any photos of the market so this image is from the Bird in Borrowed Feathers Facebook page. You should give them a like!
Then on sunday I went to the London Illustration Fair in Hoxton, which was really fun, they had a tropical theme and lot so of screen prints I wanted to buy but could not afford/frame. I also went to the flower market on Columbia Road for old time sake, and popped in to Nelly Duff gallery for a catch up! Big things are about to happen at Nelly Duff! The boyfriend was very tired after the weekend was up, though I’m glad he got to see the flower market and the gallery finally.
Had a really eventful illustration filled weekend! I went to High Noon show on saturday by graduates from Bournemouth external London show. Some amazing work and picture books on display. I then went onto new designers and the illustration section really was mind blowing, its actually made me quite scared that I’m graduating at the same time as so many talented illustrators! The Absolut vodka bottle was done by Kate Ducky and was my favourite design this year.
I have just finished an internship at BigFish design studios. They design all the amazing food packaging you seen in shops, I was so excited to meet the illustrator of the famous Clipper Tea packaging! It was a short placement a great insight into how a packaging design agency functions. They have a stunning studio in Chelsea, it was a bit surreal to be working in Chelsea every day. I could not get passed how rich the area is and the beautiful shops and houses.
