How could I possibly resist? I went to the website listed on the back of the card, and I've been enamored ever since. Here are a few more of my favorite Belle & Boo illustrations.
Aren't they wonderful? I think the most marked effect that these illustrations have had is to increase my confidence with outlining. I didn't start outlining my fashion design figures until last semester, because I like my illustrations to look very soft and I was afraid an outline would lend itself to a more severe look. But now I'm squarely in the outlining camp, and, looking at the illustrations from Belle & Boo, it's clear that an outline doesn't have to be harsh at all.
There are two things that make me feel like a child on Christmas, and those two things are home wares and stationery. And Belle & Boo offers both. Oh my goodness...I'm absolutely in love with this sleepy-sweet mug and adorable, adorable gift tags and pillow with Boo the bunny on them.
Belle & Boo also offers children's clothing, wall decals, notebooks, cards, pins, and even a book. And yes, it is all this adorable.
...I'm not too old for a Boo wall sticker, right? Right?

[...] 1900s. I’ve loved his work ever since I first saw it, in an art book of my dad’s, and like the work of Belle & Boo, I think it’s pretty clearly influenced my illustration [...]ReplyDelete
