Wee bonny Scotland!


A trip to Edinburgh

After a busy couple of weeks, producing work, for a PR company in London and a homepage visual for an illustrator, I was so excited to go on a break and spend a few days taking in the scenery, history, food and getting some inspiration in Edinburgh.

The weather wasn’t fantastic all the time, yet there was sunshine and it definitely felt cooler than Manchester.

I felt the vibe of the friendly atmosphere and loved walking round the centre of Edinburgh and cutting through a few of the many steep alleyways, however I had eaten lots – mainly to give me energy (from all the walking) but didn’t get to try any haggis. Next time perhaps!

I stayed in the old part of Edinburgh, comprising boutique fashion shops, bars, pubs and restaurants, and I came across an art shop called The Red Room Gallery, selling affordable art! So far, in my blog, I have focussed mainly on illustration and surface design pieces with a bit of graphical work. Here, however, I have added a couple of graphic posters which I bought from the shop.

The Red Door Gallery is one of Edinburghs most distinctive and loved boutique art spaces. A melting pot of affordable artwork, indie prints, artists books, accessories, jewellery, homewares and artist cards. They also have an online shop.
