My second semester at art school in Dundee ended a wee while ago and since then I have been back in my hometown of Glasgow for the Summer. I have decided to give my bedroom here a bit of a refresh so I thought today I would share a little bit about my plans for the space...
Degree shows are always a great place to discover new illustrative talent. I recently visited Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art degree show in Dundee and was super impressed by the amazing work on display. I am admittedly perhaps a little biased as I am currently studying at DJCAD myself but the work really was brilliant!
Flying Eye Books are with out a doubt my favourite picturebook publisher. The Fying Eye team work together with some of the most talented creatives in the business to produce gorgeous children's books filled with adorable characters and hearty morals which readers of any age can enjoy. I am lucky enough to own quite the collection of their stunning titles and am always intrigued to see what they will be releasing next.
As I said in my Rebooting The Blog post, I have plans to do lots more blogging about men's fashion. Plans include my own spin on fashion illustration and some experiments with creating my own illustrated apparel but today I am starting with a slightly simpler post - a classic wishlist.
At the end of March, I was too busy preparing for my art school hand-in to put together a monthly favourites post so this month's is a double bill. I know I could have just skipped a month but I promised I would create a favourites-themed illustration for every month this year. Plus, too many great things happened in March to skip it!
I think I have made it pretty clear (by blogging about it all the bloody time) that I quite like a bit of stationery. So when Bookblock got in touch with me to see if I would like to have a look at a few of the notebooks from their stationery collection, my answer was of course "YES!".
Headless Greg will be going through some changes over the next few months. I have plans for a kind of gradual relaunch over Spring/ Summer including a couple of exciting new additions to the site. First though, I want to get the blog back on track. The last several months have been very quiet around here but that is all about to change.
Happy International Women's Day! Following on from yesterday's list of 16 Female Creative Bloggers, today I want share the love for some of my favourite female illustrators. My original plan was to put together a list of my top 10 female artists but whittling my list down to that few was far too difficult so I ended up doubling it.
Last year on International Women's day I shared a list of my top ten female creative bloggers. Since then, these creative women have continued to inspire me on a daily basis and I have added a few more female-led blogs to my regular reading list. Ahead of International Women's Day 2018 (which is tomorrow, in case you didn't already know) I thought I would update my list and celebrate some of my favourite female creative bloggers once more...
