Lisa Mitchell Art Work

I have been meaning to post this art work for a while now... a few months ago I was asked by Lisa Mitchell to produce a design for the tour t-shirts for her tour that she is now on. We wanted to combine my styles with her own with my input being the geometric shapes and styles, and hers being the birds, handwritten writing and arrows. These concepts together work really well and I am so happy with the result. The t-shirts will be on sale online in a few weeks, I will post a link when they do, so be sure to pick one up!

Ideas...

I seem to have a tendency of seeing something on the internet, liking it and then just saving it to my lap top and then not being sure where I got it from... this going for the images below. As you know from my look book on my website, Lucy Jay is all about wearing scarves in various ways; what I like about this approach is that it is very classic with regard to the way it has been worn around the head and shoulders however with the styling it really looks quite contemporary, particularly with the bold colours of the scarf itself. Give it a whirl with your Lucy Jay scarf!


Also check out the 'A Daisy Chain Dream Blog', Lucy Jay has been featured on there and all of the comments are so nice, thanks to everyone!

Colours

I am always attracted to colours and particularly by this set of images from Ana Benaroya, the colour combinations are really great and make for some really interesting and unique pieces, I love them.

Love Love Love

The past few weeks I have not really been focussing on inspiration and ideas for Lucy Jay as I have had a million other things to do, however I have got back on to it over the past few days and I am ready to start designing again; I am also having to juggle this with promotion of Lucy Jay and the general running of the label, so it is all hard work, however with work inspiring me that is along the lines of French Fourch that is no problem at all... I love this, and looking through their work is a pleasure. There website is a must to check out.

I think the colours of the screen prints below are beautiful, the combinations work so well and create really amazing pieces.





So, work now has begun on the next collection of scarves...

PEACE AND LOVE!

Sorry for the lack of posts over the past week I have been super busy with so much stuff going on. This week I am London, Wirral, Wirral, London and anywhere else in between. I am looking to finish a lot of odd jobs this week regard to the admin side to Lucy Jay, so I am busy making sure I meet my deadline.

When it comes to things like press releases, making sure my books are up to date, sale or return invoices and line sheets I did feel quite out of my depth; I am a designer and did a degree in design so a lot of this initially just seemed like jargon to me, however I am lucky to have the support of Wirral Biz who can help me out with any of these problems and ensure that I am on the right track and I now understand everything I need to know... well for now!

My website only has a few more bits and pieces that need finishing off then it is perfect, so I pop up a link in here when it is done for you to check out. It is all looking really good which is exciting!

There was a protest in London on Saturday afternoon, I took some pictures, thought it was all quite interesting. I particularly like this guys customised jacket.. 'PEACE AND LOVE!'

And also, I have been a bit stressed out recently... do you think I have aged at all because of it? Maybe just a few lines here and there?!
