Real Living Magazine - Burntfeather

real living magazine - cat girl print

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!

  2. Gosh you are so talented. These are so amazing. I must say, of the two mermaids, my favorite one is the one on the left, but I can see why the other one would appeal more to children.

  3. ahh that's interesting to hear that! My brain definitely went there first but I ended up quite liking the cutesy version. I might release prints of the darker left girl at some stage :)

    Thanks for the love btw!!

    I like both mermaids but the one on the right probably appeals more to me, but then I am a big kid :)

  9. I absolutely love your girl batman mask drawing, congratulations on the feature in the magazine, it is well deserved! :)

    The mermaid with the shark idea is so great! I can see why you first saw it in a little darker way.
