We absolutely adore these fashion illustrations by Leigh Viner. We love how free and expressive they are and just how fricking cool she makes each of her ladies look! It takes an incredible amount of skill to get so much detail into drawings that actually have very few lines and the pops of colour are just perfect. Apart from taking Drawing and Commercial Art classes, Leigh is mostly self taught which makes her impressive client list all the more incredible. See her full range and read more about her on her website here.
We came across these charming illustrations by designer Nicola Davidson aka Paper Moon on Twitter where she was introducing her followers her new Etsy shop. We instantly fell in love with their whimsical nature – the colours, the textures, the style – everything! There are also mouth watering snippets of cushion designs on her website which she is yet to fully reveal . We will definitely be keeping an eye on these – they look lush! You can see her Etsy shop here or follow her blog here.
Neil Stevens, aka. Crayonfire, is a one-man studio, creative illustrator, image-maker and graphic artist based in St Albans and London. His Flight Tag prints below are such a simple idea but sooooo bloomin’ effective. Neil’s work includes illustration, prints, posters, image-making and design across all areas of music, sport, technology, art, finance, nature and the environment. And his talents have been recognised in Computer Arts, Esquire, The Daily Telegraph, Phaidon and Time Out Magazine – to mention just a few. Impressive, eh?..(and we rather love his pseudonym too!)…
Craig & Karl live in different parts of the world but collaborate daily to create bold, vibrant work that we think is flippin’ awesome! The talented duo specialize in illustration and installation, creating work for clients including Google, Nike, Apple, Vogue and the New York Times… And if this wasn’t impressive enough, they have also exhibited their work at the Musée de la Publicité, Louvre. Take a gander and enjoy….
There is something majestic and ‘other-worldly’ about the work of Canadian-based artist Tchmo. His prints are available via Society6, and Little Paper Planes, and we just can’t get enough of them. He also has a dreamy range of cushions which we’re loving just as much! Check a few items out below, and prepare to be transported….
Here at Morning Edit HQ we love a bit of vintage and we love a bit if collage so you can imagine how excited we are by the work of Laura Redburn, aka Cardboard Cities. There are many people doing this style of work but we love these because they are so balanced and the colours are so enchanting; more vibrant than pastels but too muted to be considered bright. At only 26 years old she already has a press and client list which includes some pretty impressive names and we can only imagine it’s going to continue to grow. You can purchase prints from her Etsy shop or you can find the collages on a number of different products in online at Society 6. What are you waiting for?
Melbourne artist Miranda Skoczek has caught our eye with her brightly coloured wildlife artworks – and we think you’re gonna like them too! Exploring themes such as memory, inside/outside, the domestic and self, her practice is a constant search for beauty, touching on the themes of embellishment, opulence and luxury. Ignoring any distance between high and low art, she is committed to producing work loaded with positivity, hoping to engage the viewer physically as well as psychologically.
Well it’s worked for us! We’re positively engaged!…
Ok..so the weather is rubbish.. It’s cold, it’s a little bit snowy (in places)…and summer suddenly feels a very long way off! But these unique, handmade bangles from Australian design company TreeHorn Design help us daydream that warmer climes are just around the corner… (ahhhhhh…bliss!). TreeHorn Design is a small business run from a little workshop in Melbourne using either reclaimed or sustainably grown timber and recycled cardboard paper. And their sugar-almoned palettes are cheering us up perfectly. Thank you, Treehorn!
There seems to be a heck of a lot of ‘collage’ artwork out there at the moment within the wall-art scene, but there are some great designers behind this work which are standing out amongst the crowd. London-based artist Steven Quinn is one such designer. His fire pieces – with their 1950′s ‘armageddon’ style vibe – are both a little bit terrifying and captivating at the same time. And we love them. Have a butchers at the following… let us know what you think?
We came across the title sequence for the new English caper film ‘The Hot Potato’ last weekend, and while we are yet to watch the actual film in full (i’m about 40mins into it so far), the opening title sequence is wonderful! The team responsible for this charming work is Rushes - a London-based award winning international VFX company – and we LOVE what they have put together..
We’ve shared a few stills below, but have a look for yourself here.. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do (we’re sure you will)..
