How beautifully arresting is the work of Izziyana Suhaimi? Izziyana describes herself as being endlessly curious, and in her own words..“My work primarily involves the use of embroidery. I am interested in collapsing the boundaries between traditional and popular cultures and exploring the links that exist between these two. My work examines how this particular mishmash manifests itself in modern times, especially concerning modern youths.”
Izziyana prefers to work with craft-based techniques, and has exhibited her pieces in Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan. Stunning, huh?
We came across these lovely, fun illustrations by Susse Collection and just had to share them. Their childlike naievety and fun characters make them so endearing, it would be impossible to own a print and not smile when you saw it. I think Creative Director Susse Linton fulfils her brief – to add a little fun to your day! She takes inspiration from her travels, colour and everyday fun things you can find in life which really come across in the work. Go on – smile!
There was some pretty awesome stuff on show at the recent Pick Me Up exhibition at London’s Somerset House, but one of the collections which screamed at us from across the room was the work of Hattie Stewart. Pick Me Up was packed with great stuff.. don’t get us wrong…and soooo many talented people had their work on show, but it was Hattie’s work which really stood out from the crowd, bringing a fresh, cheeky, slap-in-the-face – which we absolutely loved. Hattie has not only exhibited worldwide but has collaborated with the likes of Adidas, YCN, Nylon Magazine and Diesel – to mention just a few from a very long list. We think it’s pretty safe to say that you’re gonna be seeing a lot more from Hattie in the future!
I love paint drips incorporated into artworks, it gives the feeling of incompleteness and error and yet somehow manages to look so aesthetically pleasing. Carl Moore’s series of works on animals provide the perfect combination of beautiful artwork mixed with beastly paint drippings. There’s also something about the background shades that really bring out the colours of the subject and just adds to the overall intensity and graphic nature of the work. We love them!
We came across the work of Jamey Christoph on Pinterest and fell a little bit in love. What a dreamy child like view he has of the world! We really like the colours, the retro feel, the texture – in fact what’s not to like?! Working out of his tiny apartment in Dupont Circle (with his dogs for company…), Jamey produces illustrations for a range of media including newspapers, magazines and greeting cards. He has a blog, Alley Cats & Drifters where you can keep up to date with his latest work and see snippets of what he is currently working on.
Glasgow-based illustrator and animator Lesley Barnes creates beautifully magical work. Her designs are packed with colour, imagination, and sooooo much fun that it’s no surprise her work has been shown at film festivals worldwide winning numerous awards. She has produced animations for television (BBC, Channel 4), film, documentary and has directed a number of adverts, as well as building a client list including Wrap magazine, V&A Museum, Node rugs, Anorak magazine, Puffin and Bestival. She is one talented laydeeee! Enjoy….
Malika Favre is one of those designers who we can’t believe we haven’t already featured here on Morning Edit. Shame on us!! On a recent visit to the uber-fantastic Pick Me Up show at Somerset House we were blown away yet again by her work – this time her brand new rather kinky Kama Sutra A to Z. And so we just had to share her work with you asap! Her work is absolutely stunning.. it’s sexy, stylish, clever, fresh and she has such a strong, distinguishable style which she absolutely owns. Yep – we’re in love. Take a peep at the following as we think you will be too….
If you, like us, spent most of your childhood worshipping the likes of Luke Skywalker, C3PO, Ralph Macchio, WWF, The A-Team, Knight Rider and a plethora of superhero’s, then the work of Marz Jr. is made for you. His nostalgic, signature style takes us back to the good times when we thought anything could be achieved if we could only master catching a fly with a pair of chopsticks.
LA-based artist Marz jr. spent over a decade collaborating in colouring work for a private studio representing Marvel and DC Comics, and has had his illustration work published in newspapers and magazines all over the world. He now exhibits his work internationally, and it’s safe to say that here at Morning Edit HQ we are big fans.
There is something about the work of Austin-based photographer Alexandra Valenti which is really magical, don’t you think? We love how effective these pieces are in their simplicity.. How adding hand-drawn colour gives these photographs a completely new dimension. And it also makes us want to live by the water and frolic with nature! I mean – who doesn’t? All of her prints are available as limited editions should you wish to be transported to one of these dreamy destinations. We certainly do.
As you know when it comes to poster art, we love a bit of good typography.. and these posters by Copenhagen-based designer Ruth Vissing are just our bag! Titled Pawaiian Hunch, Ruth has designed the full alphabet in five styles; Copenhagen, Berlin, Stockholm, Amsterdam & Milan. A little bit retro.. a little bit masculine.. and all rather uber-cool, we kinda want the whole set!
