New patterns and boxes






Since I got back from Australia my health has been really really poor. The 18hr flight fucked up with the varicose veins on my calf and I even spent the night in hospital, it was that bad! Its been 2 weeks since and I'm still in pain and limping around the apartment, splashing my veins with cold water 4 times a day and taking lots of medication for the pain. Argh this heat aint helping either. Anyway apart from my grumblings its given me time to sit down and draw. The second drawing with the cactus and sea life like drawings is something from my childhood. The reason I went home last month was because I had a death in the family, so that drawing was based on my childhood spent at the sea and the massive cactus plants I used to play in at my nona's house (it was a massive plantation of cactus that me and my cousins would sneak in past to get to the neighbours backyard or we would just play in there). I'm going to get around to having the cactus pattern printed onto fabric, then I'll decide what to do with it later. I actually tested out what the pattern would look like on my empty and other stories boxes.

OK I'm off to try enjoy the summer weather. I'm loving Paris being empty this time of the year! The supermarkets are empty and there are less people around. Thats because the Parisians are all on summer holidays woo. I'll be joining them soon too can't wait! ok ok i'm off to go eat and rest my little leg.

MENSWEAR PART 1



I've been drawing all morning trying to fight jet lag and over thinking everything in life. This is part 1 of a series of 3. I'll be adding more throughout the month...I think.
TOP: Prada, Topman, D&G

Dries Van Noten - Inspirations at Les arts décoratifs







I wish I could have taken more photos from this exhibition but the security were all over everyone like Mike Tyson at a beauty pageant! PAS PHOTO PAS PHOTO! Anyway this is all I got without them yelling PAS PHOTO and scaring the shit out of me. I really really enjoyed this exhibition, I just want to wear everything. I do love me some Dries but after seeing this exhibition I love him even more.  If you're in Paris go check it out at Les arts D√©coratifs, open until the 31st of August 2014. Not to be missed!

Paints







I've been working on a series of these paintings. I have no idea what they are yet but I'll figure it out soon. For now they relax me while I paint. More to come I guess.

Shop Open


Sorry about the pricing, its the only way I can profit off this website. I won't be adding any other additional things in the store like t-shirts and phone cases. You see with Society6 the only way you make a profit is from selling prints and framed artworks. I did sell some phone cases and made $1.80 profit, and the retail price was $35 buckaroos! Today I added more of my illustrations to the store, you can get my little doodle girls I've been drawing lately and my paintings. Shop at the link below ^_^

Doodles






I haven't really been in the drawing mood lately. I haven't really drawn anything I'm particularly happy about. I've been watching a lot of movies, tv shows and reading instead of drawing. Maybe I'm a bit bored? If I had a studio with space to create and a whole heap of art supplies I might do something else. I would love to get back into silk screening and make textiles or paint large scale paintings or even try get into pattery. I'm pretty limited right now with the small space I'm working with, I draw at my desk in the corner of my bedroom and my apartment is only 35 square metres without a balcony. Yes, I live in a small yogurt pot! Anyway sorry to complain but I'm going to take a little break from arts. Maybe? I do like drawing these little women above though. LE SIGH

Chanel and Miu Miu





I found these old drawings I made on my hard drive last night and decided to pretty them up.

Wookit Tablet Cases





I teamed up with Wookit and fellow illustrator friend Derek Cardigan, who directed me with my artwork to make a few illustrations and a pattern for tablets! Check out more on their website wookit.br.com
