This is Major Tom to Ground Control: I know it has been ages since I last posted an actual decent post here, but things have just been too crazy and time, too scarce. Right now, at this very moment, I am packing to go to Switzerland tomorrow, where I’ll be for the next couple of weeks, walking about, drinking hot wine, taking pictures and generally freezing my buttocks off. All good fun.
But before I board that plane, I wanted to make sure I left a message here to all my readers and to everyone else who comes to this blog every now and again: Thank you so much. For your presence here, for your interest in illustration, for all the kind comments I have received over the months and the lovely emails. I didn’t know I was going to meet so many wonderful people in this blogging business, but I have and I am ever so grateful.
I am also glad that I have met so many inspired and inspiring women, who are all amazing at their craft, be it fashion, photography, drawing, sewing, writing, whatever… all forms of creative expression are precious and I admire and respect every single one of you. May you all have a wonderful Christmas and an even more inspiring New Year.
So without further delay, raise your glasses. Let’s toast.
Lots of love from Lisbon and I’ll se you in 2011. :)
Oscar Niemeyer is 103 years old today. He’s still working and exercising his genius mind. How absolutely inspiring, don’t you think?
Oh joy! I just published a new illustration piece. This time for an article on the 1928 original silent movie production of Moulin Rouge.
The film was presented at a special screening at the British Film Institute, as part of the Fashion in Film Festival happening in London. – These cool festivals always seem to happen in London and nowhere else. Now why is that? :)
Anyway, I was asked to illustrate one of the many incredible costumes used in the film. Here it is:
I haven’t seen the film but I am guessing it must be glorious. For the complete review go to Amelia’s Magazine.
