LOVING : IconClub

It's no secret that I'm hugely inspired by Barbara Hulanicki, I even named my daughter after her iconic '60's store

I love Barbara's illustrations, I wish that I could produce a drawing even half as amazing as the ones on these scarves from her newest venture IconClub.

A perfect Christmas gift I recon...

And if you are a fashion lover, Barbara's new book, The Biba Years, is an absolute must have.

Moleskine Sketching : Cat Doodle

I've been making a real effort to take time offline recently and I've discovered a real love for doodling.
I always loved art class when I was at school but I didn't have the patience (or the time) to dedicate to producing even a mediocre piece of artwork, I was too busy dancing. I'm making up for that now. 

I'm challenging myself and it feels good. When I've completed a pic, I really feel as if I've achieved something.
