Artworking: July 2017

Much work that I cant share. The commission I'm undertaking is by far the biggest I've ever done (28 pieces!), with the most restrictive contract I've ever signed. So I cant share progress pics but let me assure you, I'm artworking long and many days

All the work I cant show you. Biggest commission of my life & confidentiality contract.

Daylight LEDs

New lighting in the studio! Game changerrrrr

Through that dark doorway is my little workshop, housing my band saw, cut-off saw, table saw, drills, sanders, grinders, beer fridge and clean up sink. It clearly needs new lighting too but baby steps, one life change at a time.

Defs the most exciting thing this month

Defs the most exciting thing that happened in July 2017

I'm so delighted with how this collaboration with @artworkerprojects turned out! 
The printed fabric was designed by @artworkerprojects based on one of her original artworks. The landscape panel was just over a meter wide, so to make the most of the design, the sleeves and skirt back are black scuba from Spotlight. 
I love the way I was able to use the mirrored mountain ranges of the landscape to create a collar effect on the front bodice, which then flows into the back of the bodice. 💛 
The top is a @colettepatterns #seamworkastoria , the skirt is drafted from my block. 
Thank you so much Rosie for sending me your gorgeous fabric! I had so much fun working on this outfit 💕

I'm so happy to be designing fabric prints, I love it! And seeing what someone else makes of it is thrilling. I will elaborate on this project another time, lots more where this came from.
