Real Living Magazine - Burntfeather
I was so delighted when a lovely fan hit me up on facebook with the news that my Cat Girl print was in the July edition of Real Living! I get a lot of inquiries about the Cat Girl print and people wondering why they have seen it elsewhere. To give a quick run down, I've been working with this delightful company, Mini and Maximus and the cat girl artwork just happened to be one of the designs we have collaborated together on. Mini and Maximus are responsible for producing a really sweet range of kids wear and prints which I believe are also sold through Bodie and Fou (though I've never dealt directly with them).
I just recently worked together with Mini and Maximus for a new design called the "Shark Whisperer".
The mermaid on the left was what I came up with for the initial design, upon hearing the brief. The lass on the right is the final outcome after undergoing a few changes. It's always interesting to receive a design critique, I guess my brain was going a lot darker than they wanted for a kids company. I think there is definitely something powerful in collaboration, it pushes you to come up with something you'd never have dreamt of!
