COCOSKIES | An art blog: February 2013


ice cream

Painted with watercolour.
Well, I can't believe it's taken this long but I can happily announce that I've finally opened an Etsy shop!

This new painting will be the first print to go up for sale. These (and most) prints will be A4 size (8.3 x 11.7 in.), signed, dated and printed on high quality matte paper. I have a limited supply at the moment, so if you like this particular print please order it quickly to avoid disappointment.

I'd like to bring out more new artwork made especially for the shop. I want to fill it with colourful paintings of collections of things and fashion illustrations. If you would like to buy a print of any of my old artwork that's not a problem! Just let me know by commenting or emailing me and I will try my very best to sort it out for you.

Before I go, two important questions:

Which ice-cream would you eat first, and what kind of things would you like to see in the shop? :)

Sharing the love

All artwork in this post is by Chrissie
I rarely do posts like this but I thought it would be nice to introduce you all to a new artist. If you like art blogs like mine I promise you that you'll love this one. It's fairly new and ran by my talented friend Chrissie. She has such an effortless, beautiful style (I couldn't not share her work). It's the kind of work you see as a kid in those sophisticated art books and desperately aspire to. Her medium usually consists of watercolour and fineliner. Seems relatively simple yet her work still manages to amaze me!

NYFW sketches

Bcbgmaxazria, Karen Walker & Prabal Gurung.
Here are just a few sketches I did on my new favourite thing - a Fashionary book. It's essentially a Moleskine, but tailored for a fashion designer. In the front there's a list of useful resources such as a fashion house directory, as well as material dimensions for making clothes. The rest of the pages are filled with faint, dotted silhouettes - allowing you to draw outfits fast. I think it was designed with the rapidity of runway sketching in mind.

I bought it simply because I love illustrating fashion (definitely not planning to become a fashion designer). Oh and because I like hoarding sketchbooks. I'm looking forward to seeing what London Fashion Week brings this week - more drawings I hope!

What were your NYFW highlights?
