Illustration for Amelia's magazine featuring Liv designs.

I love to be involve with Amelia's Magazine. She is one of the best art director I could ever find. Better than any tutor I had in uni and she got the experience to prove it. This time the illustration I've created depicts ethical fair trade clothing from LIV clothing company. 
As usual I start every illustration with a pencil sketch which it's scanned and then finished in illustrator.
Here is the whole article review Amelia's Magazine

Feeling homesick

This is me in lovely Cuzco in the highlands of Peru, Two years ago we decided to remember the place where Nick and I met, It's amazing how some places never change like the time never past.
I miss Peru of course but sometimes I miss it more specially in December. Let me tell you a bit about our Christmas celebrations.

Christmas is celebrated on the 24th December. In the evening, the family get together and drink champagne. My mom used to prepare roast Turkey with apple sauce and Waldorf salad. Panetonne and hot chocolate after that. We celebrate the nativity of Jesus at midnight. Then we go near to the tree to open the presents
Fireworks at midnight are a must! We used to stay awake till 3 in the morning of course on the 25th no one is in the streets everyone is recovering from the night before he he!!

Happy Christmas everyone!

New Illustration for Amelia's Magazine "Justine Picardie on Coco Chanel at the Victoria and Albert Museum"

Since I remember my mother told me that Chanel was the most elegant woman in the whole world. so when Sally Mumby Croft comissioned me to illustrate  an image to accompany her article I was so thrilled with the idea. No only because is reminds me my mother who is not with me anymore but because Chanel was and is an inspiring woman. An icon of fashion, a legend.




Here is the link to the wonderful article by Sally Mumby-Croft for Amelia's Magazine

Hello my dear friends, this morning I received a phone call about a job I had an interview on Tuesday and yes I got the job but it's only temporary for Xmas!!! I'll be working in the fashion section of a posh retailer. ohhhhh




Here are some images I did for the Compendium of fashion Illustration for Amelia's Magazine, Even I wasn't selected i enjoy every minute of vector drawing. I'm so happy with Amelia's feedback she is giving me the chance to understand and be more aware of the latest trends.

Almost forgot the illustrations feature the garments of Scottish designer Henrietta Ludgate.
