As you may or may not know I've recently been illustrating vintage fashion for the Cherry Closet Boutique, and here are some of the prints I'm going to be selling at the What Alice Found shop in Boscombe.

I'm also working on opening an etsy shop, it's about time really! So I will be selling the prints there too. (I'm currently working on some christmas cards, which will be available to buy soon)

Additionally, I was interviewed by The Artfuls about my work. Here's the link if you wanted to have a read!

James' Paradise - New Work for October Private View

As you may know I'm exhibiting a few of my original paintings, and prints at Debut Contemporary in London, and here is my newest work which will be on show at the October Private View!

It has taken me three weeks to complete and is A1 in size. I created the paradise on the basis of the description James gave me, and this is the result.

To make the picture I studied a lot of plants and flowers from the botanical gardens, as well as including strata, and rocks that I had photographed from the south coast.

I am really happy I am able to show you all. I will be making it into prints if anyone is interested.

Hello! It's been a while since I updated, and that's because I've been working a few weeks now on a new painting, and a commission, as well as getting ready for my private view at Debut Contemporary, Notting Hill (need to post up pictures from the night!)

But I've finally finished my A1 painting, and here's a sneak peek for you all to have a gander at, I'm going to get a high quality scan done so I will be revealing it soon, and making it into prints if anyone is interested.

Little Van Goghs

So I've been doing design work for a lovely little company called Little Van Goghs, that specialise in 'personalised art prints for little people.' The artwork is created by Sheila Lancaster.

I've been working on postcards and thank you cards. I have a flyer still to do so I should be posting that up soon..


So there have been a couple of features of my work as of late! I was featured in 'Fuss Magazine,' a new magazine focusing on new emerging talent created by Abby Wiltshire.

And I also was featured on Sketchbook Magazine's blog as Illustrator of the day, where they showcased my portfolio!

Promotional Material for upcoming exhibitions...

So lots of things have been happening in preparation for my end of year shows, these are the business cards and postcards I will be handing out.. exciting!

It's my private show in Bournemouth tomorrow. Will be uploading pictures of the exhibition and final pieces soon..

Here are a couple of the latest images from my current project which I am doing on the theme of paradise. I collected descriptions from different people what their paradise would look like, and then tried to interpret them..

just playing around with abstraction, and colour with these, but I am working towards creating 3 final images.
Feedback is welcome! would like to know what you think..

Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration Book Launch

So on Friday I was lucky enough to go to Amelia's Launch Party for the book at 123 Bethnal Green. Here is me with my plus one for the night, my lovely boyfriend James.

The venue was tucked behind a vintage shop, and the party was held on several floors, with the band 6 Day Riot playing on the upper floor, and a DJ set from the Pipettes, and later on Will from the Mystery Jets.

Illustrator Krister Selin with the Pipettes

The bottom floor was where I got this gorgeous goody bag, with customised moleskine and tatty devine necklace with the amelia logo... absolutely love the tote too!

And Here's the cake by Lily Vanilli.. it tasted and looked amazing, with the most delicious icing ever..
I had a great time meeting the designers and other illustrators who have also been published in the book, and who I also follow on Twitter. It was so great to finally meet them in person!

Illustrators Abby Wright, Myself and Krister Selin

Sally Mumby-Croft, Matt Bramf, Myself and Krister Selin

And here's Amelia Gregory looking great, Well done Amelia for organising such a great party!

My pages in Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration

If you read my earlier blog posts you will know that I won Amelia's Magazine's Open Brief Competition as one of the Illustrators to design a fashion collection and be featured in her latest book.

I finally got my copy of it over Christmas, a couple of days before in fact, and what a great present!
It was the same time last year that I was opening my Amelia's Anthology of Illustration, so to be actually in this installment is a little surreal!

I'm very happy with my pages, I think they turned out really well, all the pages are jam-packed full of colour and pattern. Especially loving the layouts Amelia has created, she's done such a great job!
