This girlswear garment currently available at Next features graphics and repeat prints I created. heres the original artwork below:
Here are two handpainted watercolour designs I have done for Next Girlswear available here. Its tricky to produce artworks which have a true watercolour quality that can be commerically outputted with standard screen inks. I’ve developed a way of creating this kind of design which gives it a true painterly quality while only requiring standard output process with a limited number of screens.
I’ve not blogged for a while as I’ve been completely swamped with work, and much of it consists of things that can’t be released in the public domain yet, so I’ve not had much to share.
The new season collection is now online at next.co.uk, and here are some of my graphics that feature:
…Don’t go together all that well. This weekend I’ve had chronic stomach pains and as a result have had next to no sleep. Terrible timing as I was supposed to be working in-house at Next today. Its extremely rare that illness affects my capacity to work, but today there was no way I was up to going in. Its a gentle reminder that you have to take extra care of yourself when you’re self-employed as no one else is going to do the work for you or hand out sick pay.
Childrenswear designs I started working on for Next almost a year ago are starting to filter through into the shops. Heres a couple on the Next.co.uk website…
