Sorry Blogger, I think after contemplating, I am ready to move on. I had fond memories here since Uni but head over to my Wordpress to catch up with the latest news.

Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration Book Tour!

Previously as I try to search in vain for British street parties, I was slightly disappointed at the lack of them in my community. Or it could be the fact its all hidden away, and only invites only??

However, one thing I am invited to, and I am delighted to take part in 'Five of the Best' in Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration Book Tour! Which starts in Convent Garden with Tatty Devine on Tuesday 10th, 6pm-10pm. I will be there with lovely fellow illustrators Jo Cheung and Gemma Millie, chatting, merriment and doing some live drawing!

The book tour will travel around Edinburgh, Brighton, Oxford, Bristol and back to London again. 

There's more information and you can book your place here.

Also I was super chuffed to see a feature about me on Grafik Magazine website! It is a really sweet write up and perfectly describes the way I work. Better than I can describe myself at times, so I can thank Amelia enough.  Check it out!

It seems to be an exciting night and come by if you can. 
Regardless, will keep you posted. xx

London Fashion Week: Kirsty Ward

Of lately, I've been having a hard time, due to myriad of events. (Most people, I think, would know what it is, especially if you're on Twitter). Which have made me reflect and question  for a long time, being freelance, whether I am worthy enough or good illustrator/ artist, y'know, etc, etc. It's not been meant to be self pity post, as I got over that already.  However what happened, did make me lose my confidence and I think it's best to honest with you and to myself. Otherwise this Blog won't be put to good use.  :) 

L O N G     O V E R D U E . . . . 

I created Illustrations for this year's London Fashion Week for Amelia's Magazine! Alongside lots of talented illustrators in that post. The designs of simplistic and (I love ornamental jewellery) of Kirsty Ward.

This is slight different approach to how I normally do my illustrations with more of the Mixed Media input than using acrylics as the primary medium.  Also a minimalist background! instead of masses of sporadic colours.  In conclusion, It's always good to try out new things, further my practice. 

By the way, I just want to say,
 Thanks for reading

Voluptuous 21st Century Girl

Just a little simple illustration for you all. Based slightly on true conversation between me and a colleague at work. He was describing female body types, as you do! Out of curiosity I asked his opinion on what he thought was my body type. He said, " I was "VOLUPTUOUS..." 
And he described that word very well including funny hand gestures. After all that, I was flattered and it's a really nice word to be described. Lot more oomph than described "curvy," no? So there's lots of kinds of Voluptuous-ness and here is mine. We come to accept all body types and I am happy to be "Voluptuous." Mmmm

The Launch! Of Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration

It is the morning after, and it's a great feeling Im feeling, after attending the launch of Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration and meeting really talented and fabulous people. The venue was 123 Bethnal Green Road, and the party started downstairs in the lower floors, with live band. It was bustling and lively atmosphere if you can tell them the photos!

Also I had chance to meet my fellow illustrators who are also in the book! I found it's really nice to see the face behind the illustration.  I also met jewellery designers, Maxine of Little Miss Delicious with amazing blue hair cute bracelets and Maggie Angus who seagulls/ship earrings I really love! So check them out!

Me with Zarina Liew
Jenny Robins and her man. 

With the lady herself, Amelia Gregory who worked hard all night. 
Amelia cutting a delicious cake from Lily Vanilli. So much white chocolate!  

It was a great night out, on another note,
 I wish I had chance to meet everyone I missed. Perhaps another illustration meetup in order, methinks...Mmmm. 

If you not had chance to buy the book, you can always link here xxx

Moi in Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration!

It's here it's here it's finally here! The brightest star in a form of book. That is called Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration. As most of you know, the journey from the Open Briefs, selection process, proofs and now I have physical print in my hands. ^_^

My illustrations is featured along with many talented illustrators. The book got a really natural pearlescent cover which perfectly suits Andrea's work. Also throughout the spreads, there is a organic feel, which carries through to promote ethical fashion designs. 

Self Portrait 
I really like the jazzy backgrounds and the layouts, which Amelia worked hard to produce. On a final note, I am extremely happy and proud to be part of the journey and it's a great start to 2011.
