Johanna Basford

Johanna is to me a creative gem.

She creates Inky, hand-drawn Illustrations mainly in her signature monochrome pallette. They are striking, bold, intricate and really all round fabulous.

She has created designs and surface patterns for everything from ceramics to bedlinen, packaging, wallpaper and even catwalk fashion. There isn't anything she can't put a hand to and is certainly an inspiration to any creative soul. Below are just a few snippets of things she has created but I would go see for yourself.

A Alicia

London based Textile designer A Alicia makes stunning pieces of statemental fashion accessories using felt, netting and an array of beautiful fabrics. They often take on a floral or geometric pattern and certainly are different to look at.

Each petal or bow is sewn by hand, making each piece both unique and gorgeous. I have the pleasure in owning one and I love it, it is a statement accessory which is guaranteed to get a comment. Also having met Alicia herself she is as lovely as the treats she creates.

Once upon a time x

Very cool website packed like a sandwich full of beautiful Australian Illustrations and artists work, even the banner is adorable..


Just a few examples of the treats you might find...

Bec Winnel.

Stunning images and some quirky finds if you look carefully... she uses a soft touch giving the Illustrations an ethereal feel.
