A Bunch of Artists I Adore ♥ 大好き ♥

As an artist I am inspired by so many things everyday – books, music, nature, other cultures (chyeah Japan!), and also other artists. Inspiration is a funny thing, because other’s art can inspire something to stir within your own creative juices but your end result is something uniquely your own.

One of the illustrators that inspired a development of my style from very vector based to more hand-drawn elements was the amazing mydeadpony (raphael). When I started out, I was all about bold, clean vector lines. His work is sketchy and free with a message… and really encouraged me to experiment with mixing these clean vector lines I was creating with a bit of texture. Becoming mildly obsessed with his work a few years back really subconciously moved my work in a different dir…

Thanks Sportsgirl... new illustration!

Morning! …yeah I am aware that this title is very ’Woman’s Day’ in the sense that the headline sucks you into thinking I have somehow scored a gig designing for the wonderful store that is Sportsgirl. “Bec Cartwright’s separation anxiety!”… turns out Leighton’s just off down the shops for some milk. Or going on a tennis tour or something. No such luck on the Sportsgirl gig (yet…) however they did, without knowing it, help create my latest illustration.

I was shopping there with my dear bud Raigan, (who has acted as my muse on more than one occasion. She tends to appear in a lot of my illustrations. She is a very lovely thing indeed and I am quite lucky to have her as a pal), and I was browsing the nail polishes. Probably fed up w…

Japan Earthquake: my experiences

Hi all, a big thankyou to everyone for the kind and thoughtful messages. Many of you were worried for my safety, knowing I was living and working in Japan when the super-disaster struck. Fortunately for me, I was in Tokyo at the time of the initial earthquake. I say fortunately because although it was the scariest thing most Tokyo-ites have ever experienced and our ground and buildings shook violently, we were the lucky ones compared to the devastation that hit the North (Miyagi, Sendai and surrounding areas). Not only was this beautiful country hit with the biggest most destructive earthquake in their history, they were also dealt a tsunami, which wiped out entire towns along the coast. The footage of what went down in those areas is just horrifying and it breaks my heart every minute.

Snap Happy in Tokyo!

Hiya Lovelies!
I made it to Tokyo in one piece… all moved into my cute little apartment in a rad little part of town: ‘shimokitazawa’. I have been madly exploring these last few days sussing out where all the important stuff is:
art supplies/booz/ramen/supermarket. In that order!

Since coming here I have really enjoyed taking little snaps of the world around me – this neighbourhood is just so inspiring. So although I’ve accepted the fact I’ll never go pro..haha…I thought you might enjoy a little look-see at some of these moments I’ve captured

More coming all the time, as I’m discovering there is something super sweet around every little nook and cranny.

Anyone interested - art exchange mail game? FUN!

Basically it’s a fun little art exchange game, where each artist mails one piece of their cool art (original, print, handmade, photo, whatever you fancy) to someone else off the list (which i will provide if you’re keen)

at first read it seems a bit like a chain letter but it’s so not- ive done of these before and it’s so much fun – you end up getting 36 little pieces of art by the end of it (if everyone plays by the rules!) and you only need to send out ONE piece of art! :-D

with most correspondance floating in the digital realm these days it’s refreshing and fun to get a nice little package in the mailbox don’t you think? especially when it’s something you can add to your art & inspiration wall!

so let me know asap if you’re inte…
