Staying in with Chloe Joyce

She_Cute_Tho_LoverRamenLakers_Fan_4_LyfKooka_Weekend+Vibes

There is something very comforting about Chloe Joyce’s illustrations. Perhaps it is her use of somewhat muted colours in warm shades of pink and green, or perhaps it is because they show scenes of time spent in the intimacy of home. These private and cosy moments make me feel close to these women as I identify myself with them.

No need to say that I find these illustrations oh-so-lovely, and if you fancy seeing more of Chloe Joyce’s work –which I strongly recommend; you can do so via her website or her Etsy shop.

Kincso Nagy has been making this collection of all the Harry Potter books for her Bachelor’s degree. Her version of the famous books not only glow in the dark but one of them (The Philisopher’s Stone) even has amazing pop-up illustrations in it! As an all-time Harry Potter fan, I couldn’t not love them (they are so magical!) and I really wish she could sell them!

Touchka Fashion Tales was founded by Jenny Lumelsky and Tomer Ronen out of their love for storytelling. Their intention was to create timeless pieces, between illustration and fashion, for elegant women.

What to say except that these gorgeous scarves are definitely on top of my wishlist. All of them of course.

Becca Stadtlander is an American illustrator and artist. She has been working for The New-York Times, Penguin Books and HarperCollins amongst others and I definitely understand why. Her work is bright but not bold, beautifully detailed and poetic. I love them and especially the ones with a warm palette. Perfect treat for Autumn! (PS: you can buy her gorgeous prints on her etsy shop). More of her art here.

Dex | Literary London Map

Literary London Central Black_640 Literary London Central White 21x30_640White Map close1_640dexmap4 dexmap5

Being a Londoner, I always enjoy reading/watching stories with a plot located in the city I live in. For this map, graphic artist Dex and interior designer Anna Burles have made some serious research and dug through more than 250 novels in order to fill the map.

Each character is written and located in the area they were usually hanging out, and it’s awesome. You can buy it here.
