Double Tap: Charlotte Trounce

illustrator Charlotte Trounce has been doing these amazing illustrative recaps of select SS15 fashion shows on her Instagram account, which certainly deserves a Double Tap (i would triple tap if i could!) i feel like when you look at the seasonal shows everything starts merging into one big fashion rainbow, and sometimes it just takes one talented & creative individual to show you awesome aspects and details you might not have picked up yourself.

all illustrations by Charlotte Trounce, follow her on Instagram.

Rebekah Miles

my husband just returned from an extended trip to LA and he brought back some lovely gifts, including a ceramic piece by artist Rebekah Miles. she is a new discovery to me (of course some immediate googling ensued) and i really enjoyed delving into her unique ceramic creations as well as her absolutely awesome book covers.

I am primarily a painter using ceramics as my “canvas”. I started teaching myself ceramics as a way of exploring making paintings as functional, sculptural pieces. I love putting my personal touch on the age-old artisanal craft of shaping basic forms from slabs, molds and templates.

I paint one-of-a-kind book jackets on a range of subjects, specific artists, cultural topics, photographers and authors. The selected books are a reference to art history and the art of literature and libraries. This process gives the book a new essence, and restores it to better shape (I try to find used books). It also makes it a functional sculpture/painting.

Ryo Takemasa

i don’t think i have ever spent so much time looking at illustrations of vegetables (if only i would spend as much time actually eating them). these wonderful renderings are by Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa who has done work for a number of international publications. check out his work at his website & blog. he also has a shop – so you can buy some veggies in print!
