Amsterdam

Emmeline Illustration

Hey everyone! Boy oh boy do I have some adventures to tell you about! As you may or may not have heard, last week I spent some time in the beautiful city of Amsterdam in The Netherlands. I think it's completely fair to say I was in desperate need of a break.

The Wren & The Bear process

Emmeline Illustration

Recently I've been working on a brand new illustration for the Enchanted Forest exhibition (for the 200 years of Grimm's fairytales celebration). I've been taking a couple of snapshots as I've gone along to show my progress. I don't often do this, but I think it's nice for people to get a glimpse into how I work! As usual I started building the illustration using pencil sketches with ink brush lines on top. I always try to keep the lines loose and not worry about making mistakes.

Fallen Flowers homeware

Emmeline Illustration

What's this heap of pretty you say? It's a 'Fallen flowers' surface pattern that I finished yesterday, and has now hit the digital shelves of Ohh Deer as a gorgeous cushion (and soon hopefully notebooks/other nice things). Hurray!

Wild, Wild West.

Emmeline Illustration

How good is this Cowgirl themed scrap of fabric I bought from a little shop recently? Very cool I say - I just have to think about what on earth I can make with it! Any suggestions anyone? Luckily this scrap came with the details on the white border, so I looked 'em up and found out it's by Alexander Henry's 'From the hip ' collection. So if any of you want some cowgirl fabric for yourselves, that's the place to go. The Wild West theme has been running feverishly through my head recently.

Emmeline's Christmas Giveaway

Emmeline Illustration

So it's that time of year again. I've been feeling pretty casual about it all so far, no present panics for me - but if you're hunting for something special for someone, or you fancy an early treat yourself - then you're in luck. I'm giving away one very lovely signed canvas print of my 'Snow' illustration (along with a few postcards) and a runner's up prize of a pretty sticker set (and again, yes, some postcards!). It's just a simple entry draw, so you might as well.

Introducing The New Tungstens

Fonts by Hoefler&Co.

A good type family balances cohesion and diversity. Its styles need to feel related, but each is entitled to its own personality. Nothing’s worse than paying for a collection of two dozen fonts, only to discover that each speaks in exactly the same voice. Tungsten began as a focussed set of styles that aspired to being disarming instead of pushy.

Introducing Idlewild

Fonts by Hoefler&Co.

Type designers are plagued by visions, recurring images which can only be exorcized by turning them into letters. For years we’ve been consumed by a particular quality of curve, overstuffed at the corners and punctuated by sharp edges, and gradually over time we’ve been able to give these apparitions form: first as unrelated characters, later as an alphabet, and finally as a family of fonts.
