gemma correll

A new shop has opened up in Brighton near to where I live. Dowse on Western Road is a shop full of lovely things! Apart from an awesome handbag and some very nice earrings I'm totally in love with the cards by Gemma Correll. I've come across her work before but it's the first time I have seen the range on sale in Dowse. I'm a sucker for a good pun and these from Gemma are totally hilarious....

lizzy stewart

Lizzy Stewart was one of the first artists I fell in love with when I started taking illustration seriously and looking at what contemporary illustrators were producing. Her dreamy characters and works inspired by people and things around her, as well as folk culture and music still captivate me today. I'm not sure why I haven't posted about her before! With the warm, sunny days still hanging around (just a brief two-day interlude of grey skies and rain here in Brighton), I am finding myself drawn to bright, colourful images. Here are some gorgeous, vegetation-filled paintings by Lizzy....visit her Flickr for more.
