Inspiration: Artist Stina Persson

I'm loving the work of swedish illustrator Stina Persson at the moment. Her beautiful watercolour paintings have a mix of elegance and edgyness to them, and she uses a stunning array of colours. I love the mix of sketchy drawings and fluid watercolour blending with splashes, drips, and the occassional pattern thrown in. I wish I lived in NY right now so that I could go to her upcoming exhibition, Perfectly Flawed.

Here are some of my favourite designs, which are inspiring me this week.

Design on Paperchase notebook

I was thrilled to come across one of my designs on a notebook in Paperchase last week, and I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of another design that is due to be on a wrap. I've always loved Paperchase's colourful and quirky designs, and the experience was made all the better when the shop assistant serving me commented on how much she loved this design- she was rather surprised when I told her it was one of mine!

and here is a closeup:

I took a little trip to Brighton last weekend, and walked along the sea in Hove. I absolutely loved the colours of all the little beach huts. They would make a beautiful summer colour palette.

And here is the colour palette that I made from the last picture. I'll upload a print designed with it asap.

Mommie font

I'm loving this new font I found called mommie- really different and special. Can't wait to use it on some placement prints!

A little trip to Rome has given me a few inspiring images to show you. I love the composition of the typical italian scooter next to this old faded poster and the bright terracotta wall- great for a tshirt placement print idea.

and these marbled floors in the basilica remind me of all the mirror prints around at the moment

lastly I love the colour mixture in these blurred photos of confetti on the spannish steps- they make a lovely colour palette for spring/summer, as seen below.

colour lovers

I found a great website today called colour lovers. It has lots of beautiful colour palletes on there that have been submitted by the general public, aswell as info on colour trends in various artistic disciplines- check out a few of my favourites...

and this is a SS11 print I designed with one of the colour palettes. I just added in white for a background colour.

Two of my prints that I produced for my print studio Lemon Ribbon, were featured in a report by leading trend predicition website Stylesite this week. It's always nice to see that people like your work! Check them out- they are the far left print on the first pic and the far right print on the second pic...

to blog or not to blog... that is the question

Well, it seems that everyone is doing it now- so i've finally got on the bandwaggon and set up my own blog. Design is my passion, so i'll mostly be blogging about all things creative, showing you anything that inspires me and a few of my own designs along the way...
