I’ve been working on lots of illustrations this week, so my Tumblr has been reflecting this, I was surprised by the sheer amount of beautiful work I’ve been coming across, but disappointed that often the images do not credit who the artist is. This is a major downfall of Tumblr in my opinion, as I like to know who created the piece, so I can look further into the rest of their work, it’s a real shame to come across something that blows you away & have no way of knowing where it came from. I’m going to try my best when doing these weekly Tumblr round ups to only include work that I can credit with its source, for this exact reason, as I’m sure I’m not the only person this irritates.

I may have to do a few individual posts featuring these illustrators, as the rest of their work is equally as impressive, especially Marco Mazzoni, his work stunned me when I came across it. Everything about it from the composition, the subject to the detailing is just perfect, I imagine the triptych, above, scaled up would make for a striking piece hung in a bedroom or hallway.

Just a quick sketch of my Nico, this is his guilty face, he pulls this face when he knows he’s been a bad boy in an attempt to look so adorable that I won’t tell him off for it. This time he ran off with one of my socks, and this time the face worked. I am such a sucker for puppy eyes & he knows it!

I couldn’t resist doing another post on Maud Traon’s amazing statement rings, oversized & made from fimo clay, copper, heaps of glitter & kitschy found objects such as plastic gems & discarded My Little Pony’s, they are prefect for those who like their jewellery to get people talking. Maud’s work explores the relationship between preciousness, value & wearability, whilst drawing on consumerism, natural disasters & appocolyptic landscapes for inspiration. Conceptual, quirky & delightfully impractical, they are attention grabbing, finger sized works of art, just on the right side of tacky.

I so wish there were more information online as to how much & where to buy them from, as I would love the spiked orange one & the purple tower of gems…
