Art – Inktober 2016

November 1, 2016

What is Inktober?

It’s a drawing challenge, lasting the whole month of October, where you create an artwork every day. There is a list of prompts to use and the only rule is that you must use ink. This is but only one of the drawing challenges running on Instagram over the month of October. It was the first time I’ve ever done anything like it and I enjoyed it a lot! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to always publish a doodle on its set day but I managed to complete the challenge and do all 31 doodles.

Doodles inspired by Giles Deacon

July 9, 2014

Avenue 32 contacted me once again to have a look at the cute collections they have on there, and this time the chosen one to be part of my illustrations was Giles Deacon. I really loved the lipsy prints from this collection – I mean, how could I not love them? They’re quirky and pink!

For those who don’t know, Giles Deacon is a British fashion designer who has worked with many well-known brands, such as Prada, Bottega Veneta, Castelbajac, you name it. He’s a regular at the London Fashion Week and you can check some of his most recent collections at the LFW website. Make sure you look at the SS15 collection, I’m loving all the flamingos!


These boots were made for walking…

August 20, 2013

Haaaa the end of Summer. The temperature drop we had in the last few days got me thinking about Fall clothes and about wrapping up in warm and fluffy wool jumpers.I am enjoying the nice warm weather but that made me think about what to wear when it gets chilly. I tidied up my closet the past weekend and went through my shoe collection. Seeing that I now live in a country where the past few Winters have been quite harsh, I noticed that I don’t seem to have near enough boots to my liking. I had a look around here and there and although the boots in the shops are nice, I want something different. So I started doodling and thought – What if we could have the crazy boots we always dreamed of?

So I came up with some fun (and funny) designs and thought how amusing it would be to design footwear for some of my blogger friends. They may not like them in the end but they really were the inspiration behind some of these:

The Circus Boots

These would be made of red matte leather and the stars could maybe be silver or white patent leather. I thought they would be perfect for Desiree of Pull Yr Socks Up. I can see her rocking these with one of her tutus!


The Attitude Boots

Black leather, of course, with silver buckles and silver spikes. A bit too much for me but I thought they would be the boots I would buy Suzanne of Idee Fixe if I ever had to pick a pair for her.

The Grey Velvet Boots

Imagined these for Vix of Vintage Vixen, a very glamourous lady indeed. The yellow should be more mustardy and the green leaves should be embroidered on grey velvet. They may look uncomfortable but they would look fab if they were real.

The Divoon Orange Boots

These would go to Helga of Helga von Trollop, of course. I can see her wearing these with one of her fabulous capes and her beehive style do. I haven’t decided if I want them in patent leather or just regular leather. Either way, those bows would look amazing.

The Navy Boots

And these are for me, thank you very much. As I’ve said countless times before, this is one of my favourite colour combos.

Now all we need to find is someone to make these for us. And not too expensive, please! Which one is your favourite?
