This English Breakfast collection by hokolo london is rather fantastic, don’t you think? From prints to scarves to cushions to throws – the range is full of bold primary colour and delicious patterns. We’ve always been partial to a good old fry-up here at Morning Edit HQ, but this is much more our style… It’s also good to know that the ingredients are all home grown too with the lambswool blankets being woven in Scotland, and the printed cushions made in England. Perfect pressie-idea-alert!!!!!

We’ve some lovely new prints from our talented friend Ros Shiers today.. Say hello to Albert, Baxter, Bert, Ferris and Leonard. Aren’t they adorable? And perfect for any pooch-lover.. Our favourite has to be Leonard, though we feel bad for having favourites! Especially when they’re all looking at us with those puppy dog eyes!! Ok (sigh) we love you all….

logoWe all know Angie Lewin’s stunning prints right? But did you know that some of her prints (and some by other carefully selected artists) can be bought as fabric by the metre AND as a range of awesome home textile products? Since coming across the website I have spent far too much time drooling over the cushions and I promised myself that I would get one. An early Christmas present to me. Problem is, it took me so long to choose from the amazing range that by the time I’d decided which one I wanted it was sold out. Darnit. But I have been assured that more will be in stock very soon (seed heads in sage/brown since you ask…) and having re-looked I’ve decided there’s two I can’t live without. If you find yourself in the same quandary it might be worth noting that if you sign up to their newsletter you receive a £10 off a £50 purchase voucher. Score! Now I just have to convince my husband that we DO need more cushions and that in fact you most definitely can’t have too many…

Some lurrrverly prints courtesy of Sjoerd Piepenbrink, aka. Yetiland. We don’t know too much about this talented fella other than knowing he lives in Heiloo, a small coastal village near Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and likes cheese and petting his imaginary cats. But we DO know that his illustrations are bloody lovely. Nuff said.

We featured the work of Steven Quinn a little while ago here, but after seeing his recent new works we just had to share a few more! His collage work covers an abundance of themes, but most evident is the apocalyptic thread running through much of his work. There is a great deal of collage work in vogue this year, so we love seeing artists and designers who are clearly masters of their craft. And Steven is definitely that. You can see a lot of his portfolio on flickr, but what’s so crazy that this is just what he creates in his down-time, undertaking a great deal of digital animation and moving image projects the rest of the time. Seeing as though the UK is experiencing it’s own apocalyptic wind-battering this morning outside, we felt another visit to Steven’s work felt quite appropriate!

How utterly charming is the work of Texas-based illustrator Eric Comstock?! Friday’s are good anyway, but this is making ours even brighter! Eric’s clients include the likes of Land of Nod, Hallmark, Shutterfly, TeNeues, Moda Fabrics, Oopsy Daisy, Graniph and many others, and we can see why he’s a popular chappie.. Check out more here folks. Enjoy…

Ever wondered what our favourite Superhero’s are up to in their down-time? When the cameras aren’t rolling or there isn’t someone to rescue? Well look no further… courtesy of Gregoire Guillemin we have an insight into some of those more, er, ‘human’ moments. There are LOADS to check out.. some more risqué than others! But all equally fantastic and funny. Have a look at Gregoire’s website for the full collection, and the fab guys at Society6 are offering them as prints. Kapow!

{Katy} I was both privileged and honoured to be invited to be a member of the judging panel of Made in Arts London (MiAL)’s Process In Exile exhibition. Process In Exile brings together a highly curated collection of art and design from students and recent graduates of University of the Arts London for an extra-ordinary exhibition. UAL students and recent graduates were encouraged by MiAL to submit their art and design to a panel of invited industry experts, namely: Angus Montgomery, Editor of Design Week, Tom Jeffreys, Art Critic, Curator and Editor of Wild Culture, and er… lil’ old me!

As a panel we reviewed all of the submissions and were challenged with the task of selecting which pieces should be included in the show – a very hard job indeed seeing as all of the work was so diverse and exciting. Disciplines included fine art, illustration, photography, performance, video art, product design and textiles.

The exhibition focuses on connecting the bright young talented artists, having now reached a crucial point in their careers, with a growing number of generous creative professionals open to helping and advising this new generation through a series of events.

While the exhibition has just come to a close, all of the work is available for purchase on MiAL’s fantastic online shop here, and we urge you to have a look! We’ve picked out a few favourites to share with you below, but there is so much more to browse – not only from the show but from MiAL’s online shop too! Whether you’re looking to support new emerging creative talent or are searching for a special Christmas gift perhaps, you’re sure to find something unique here!

We have been fans of Matte Stephens work for many years now but I still find it hard to express just how much I love his images. They are like a mad cross between an illustrated version of Mad Men and the Jetsons (remember them?!) Or is that just my slightly warped mind? The colours are beautiful, the characters are full of style and charm and the childlike, naive environment in which they inhabit is just so engaging – can I come?!

Mattes list of inspirations are hardly surprising when considering his work and include modern design and anything by Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, George Nelson/Irving Harper and Paul Klee. He has a list of clients suitably apt for the calibre of his work and include (to name a few…and I mean a few) Tiffany & Co, American Express, Herman Miller, Disney and Chronicle Books. You can find a vast array of his work to purchase on Etsy, just click the link. You know you want to…
