Amelia’s Magazine | New Designers 2012 Printed Textiles and Surface Design Graduates: part two

New Designers part one 2012 -Phillippa Copping
Following on from my first review of printed textiles and surface design graduates at New Designers 2012, here’s my second pick of the student work. At Cleveland College of Art and Design bright geometric patterns by Phillippa Copping reigned supreme. I wasn’t surprised to learn that she has interned with Zandra Rhodes, whose influence was clear.

Amelia’s Magazine | Halloween 2012: Illustrations, Baby Fancy Dress, Nail Art and Things To Do

Halloween by Cristian Grossi.

I’m not going to write much about Halloween this year because I think I pretty much said it all last time around. And I’m knackered. All I will say is: this year I reckon it’s all about the nail art. Go on, just search twitter and marvel at all that effort: bloody drips, ghouls, stylish matte black, candy stripes, zombie brains, skeletons, spiders, bogey green and pumpkin orange. In the absence of professional nail art contributions I instead give you my crabby claws. Oh and illustrator Claire Kearns shows off her rather more dramatic glittery spider webs. Are you in on the act yet?
