Nicoletta Ceccoli

Hello Hello!  Today I would like to share the amazing illustrations of Nicoletta Ceccoli.  You might have seen the work of this Italian artist on cards or postcards.
Her work is full of untold stories of majestic princesses that live in magical places full of beauty and a pinch of nostalgia.  I love the tragic colours and romantic figures.
She has illustrated a number of books around the world and her work has been put into different products such as stationary and accessories.
Here are a little bit of her work, if you want to see more click on her website.  Have a lovely day, Love Moni!

Studio Seed

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I'd like to introduce to you all a very talented illustrator, award winning designer & brand Studio Seed.

Currently based in the West Midlands, Tamsin works from her studio & has over 6 years experience designing beautiful products which grace the hearts and homes of all who receive it. Outside of the creative world Tamsin enjoys many other passions and pursuits: a big fan of Formula One she also enjoys baking cupcakes and pretending to be the 6th member of Girls Aloud!

Tamsin has just launched a brand new shop on Notonthehighstreet and she also runs a beautiful design blog. Both are jam packed with design goodness & well worth checking out!

Happy Monday folks!

To brighten up an otherwise dreary Monday here is some scrumptious illustration from the designer and illustrator Nomoco. Nomoco is a Japanese born illustrator currently residing in London and has exhibited internationally with her wonderful, unique illustration style. Her work exhibits experimentation with contrast, bright popping colours, linear lines and font, with her inspiration taken directly from nature. There is an almost whimsical nature to her illustrations that draw a viewer in and leave an emotional impact.

You can view more of Nomoco's work on Pocko People, or there is an interesting video on YouTube where you can see an example of an illustrated moleskine notebook.

Enjoy! Kelly :)

Juliette Crane

Today I'd like to introduce to you all the wonderful work from the talented artist Juliette Crane. I first met the lovely Juliette back in May at the amazing Do What You Love art and creative enterprise retreat.

Juliette has been very busy indeed, she's a launched number of beautiful products along with running a fabulous new How to Paint an Owl e-course (The next session starts on Oct 24th)

"I've always loved creating and imagining wild and beautiful things exist in our everyday world. But I never, ever thought I could make my way as an artist. Then in the summer of 2009 my sister-in-law gifted me with a few fabulous vintage wallpaper books. I was astounded by the colors and patterns and knew I had to do something with the gorgeous paper. So, I remembered what I loved most as a kid-cutting out outfits for characters and making up their stories. And that's what started all of these whimsical paintings. I love mixing all sorts of materials in my work-acrylics, spray paint, pastels, origami paper, glitter, vintage sheet music and wallpaper.
Whenever I create things it makes me happy and my hope is that when you see the things I create, you feel that happiness too. And maybe even uncover your own inspiration and passion. And share it with the world".

Juliette has so many wonderful new products that I'd love to feature (I will share these on a follow up blog post this week) from calendars through to phone cases & limited edition lockets.

In the meantime if you would like more information about Juliette you can visit here website & online shop.
