Cards

We have a number of old bashed up suitcases in our house, collected over many years, and somehow or other, a number of them, seem to be filled full of stationery and cards. I think I might have a slight obsession.

Directly linked to this obsession, and working on projects with paper rather than cloth, I have been having a particularly nice time lately working with the wonderful Art Group designing card collections.

All very hot off the press three groups have been launched so far; ‘Wordy Words’ late last autumn, followed by ‘Ditties’ and ‘Chaps’ this February.

Have a peek at the concept boards & collections below, and if you would like to buy some click here!

Wordy Words

A collection combining my love of printed pattern, an obsession with words and aged old Letraset scribbled onto old school exercise book paper.

Ditties

I always have time for a good ditty, and thinking them up then bringing them to life with illustration has been a delightful challenge. HOT OFF THE PRESS literally, please see the collection below complete with ‘work in progress’ concept boards to-boot!

Chaps

A touch of retro, my old-fashioned typewriter and doodled faces set the scene for this group. Beardy blokes, bikers in lycra & a trendy barman donning a well trimmed moustache all feature in the ‘Chaps’ collection.
