Nymphs and Dior!

Another collage from the Forest series, the ongoing project I've been working on. I've been doing some experiments using more colours, patterns and abstract shapes to create backgrounds.

In other news I went to the (extremely glamourous!) private view for the fantastic new exhibition Dior Illustrated: René Gruau and the Line of Beauty at Somerset House last week.

The show is a retrospective of the work of illustrator Gruau and features his collaborations with the fashion house throughout the decades, along with a selection of contemporary illustrators' homages to some of his pieces. Personally its the style, the movement and complete simplicity of Gruau's illustrations that I love, they perfectly compliment the Dior style. He is the king of fashion illustration!

The exhibition also features beautiful graphic design by Studio Frith. Wonderful stuff.

Wood Nymphs continued

Some more work in progress from a series inspired by tales of wood nymphs.

I have been thinking for a while now about the idea of forests/nymphs. A lot of folklore I read explores in various forms the female spirit, and its link to nature- the symbolism is obvious, but there is something in these different representations of 'women', nymphs, goddesses of natural elements that interest me.

More to come soon

A belated post of a poster design I created for Oxfam's Oxjam Kilburn Fashion Show last month.
