Introducing... Vikki Chu

New for Spring 2014, is a collection of eight greeting cards featuring the delicate watercolour lettering, floral patterns, and wild animals of Vikki Chu. The 4 x 6" cards are printed on premium textured card, and come with coordinating coloured envelopes.

Vikki Chu is a freelance illustrator and pattern designer from Richmond, Virginia, now based in New York. Whilst Vikki enjoys experimenting with new techniques, and uses Photoshop for post-processing, she regards freehand drawing as the most important and enjoyable part of the illustration process.

"I usually use either a Rapidograph pen or a mechanical pencil. When starting an illustration, I like to dive straight into the drawing and build from there. My sketches are very loose, which I like, because it keeps me engaged in the drawing process. When sketching from life, I carry a refillable brush pen filled with an ink/water mix for washes. Watercolors are also great and I have been using them more frequently."

Available now, you can see her full range online here

Lizzy Stewart: Hard Wood and Heavy Water exhibition

Lizzy Stewart has her first London solo exhibition opening this week, at DreamBags JaguarShoes.

The venue will be transformed into an immersive graphic novel:

 "Hard Wood and Heavy Water is an elegant visual poem, a tale woven together through object and history; incorporating a network of rope festoons, small sculptures and props (from toys to tea pots and trinkets), native heathers and herbs centre pieces…it’s make believe setting is a silent sea cove, within which two houses, separated by a stretch of water are each represented on either side of the exhibition space, North and the South, divided by tide and rock." 

The exhibition is open from 31st January – 16th March 2014,
DreamBagsJaguarShoes 32-34 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DA
