Home decor collection for MOOUI

When creating this, ‘We Are Women’ homedecor collection for one of my favourite brands MOOUI, I was unfamiliar with a few of the famous females. That’s what is great about my job, being able to discover new things and in this case, important female role models!

I was asked to draw ten significant women as though they were children. They are (in alphabetical order): Aretha Franklyn, Cecilia Meireles, Cleopatra, Freda Kahlo, Harriet Tubman, Lina Bo Bardi, Malala Yousafzai, Marie Curie, Tarsila do Amaral and Yayoi Kusama. Drawing people is a little outside my comfort zone, although these were pretty fun to do!

What I loved about this project was the selection of female role models the children could aspire to. All of these ladies helped to make the world a better place, whether that be in science, writing, education activism, art & music. These positive female role models may motivate and help children discover and develop their true potential.

These are photos of the homedecor collection.

My favourite women to draw were Cleopatra and Aretha Franklin. I find them both fascinating as women and I loved their outfits too! Do you have a favourite?

By the way, I’d like to mention that I wasn’t one of the three winners selected for the Gorman Clothing competition, although I loved the winning entries. Well done to the three lucky winners! I’m also looking forward to seeing how their designs look on garments.

New Prints on Etsy

I have just re-opened my Etsy shop, after a spell of having it closed for a short holiday to Amsterdam (will show you some photos sometime) and to concentrate on completing a couple of exciting projects. I’ve added a few new prints on Etsy as well. One of them is from my “100 days…” project and two of the designs are rather more recent.

The first one I’d like to show you, is my super chilled, pink leopard. This was an old drawing which I revamped, giving it a new lease of life and I’m pretty happy with the final outcome. It’s always good to go back to older work and tweak them slightly and I’ve been doing that more of late.

The newest designs are Panda Butterfly Fish and Owls. Again, I’ve used the pattern elements from an existing design (Coral Reef), changed some of the colours and placed into it a school of Panda Butterfly Fish. I love how some fish species swim together in harmony. They are spectacular to watch!

For the owl print, I drew a variety of owls in different poses. I find owls so fascinating and thought I’d capture their characteristics. One of those is the little owl with his head tilted to the side. Owls have tubular rather than spherical eyes, so it is pretty much impossible for them to move them around. Their eyes are fixed in position so instead, they rotate their heads.

I’ve also been inspired by the animals associated with autumn and foliage and you can see the results of this on my instagram page.
