Cuppycake Pop Art Illustration

I was originally going to have a purple background to this illustration, but then started experimenting with other colours, fell in love with them all and couldn’t decide between them!  I got so confused I ended up making this tiled pop-arty piece.

I love that every time I look at their collection, I smile. Whoever chose to photograph the collection with coloured backgrounds is a frickin’ GENIUS, I love … Continue reading

Morroccan Dreams: Gucci Spring 2011

  I have  never been to Marrakech but this is my interpretation.         Okay, so I never imagined I would post an unfinished illustration but I was just getting too frustrated not to.
