ELIZAVETA PORODINA PHOTOGRAPHY



Wonderful photographer and Moscow native Elizaveta captures a dreamy yet raw image that i find very hard to resist at any given importunity. Her creations are always hazy and somewhat mystical but with a bite!

It has been photographers like Porodina that first sparked my love for fashion and aesthetic leafing through my vogue collection at 14 looking at the likes of Tim Walker/ Nick Knight/ Camilla Akrans/ Eugenio Recuenco deliciously splashed all over the ad campaigns and editorials of the crisp scented pages.

I really think no matter your knowledge or dedication to the industry, fashion editorials like these can be enjoyed by just about anyone

ARTIST STEPHEN GAMMELL


This here is just a yummy entree to tomorrows exciting post!

Tonight I thought I'd share some pieces from the extraordinary artist Stephen Gammell.

American born Gammell is a children's book illustrator with a genius imagination (and over 50 titles under his belt!)- using predominantly water colours and pencils to create stunning skyscapes and mysterious figures often resembling ink stains or smoke or in my opinion Rough-Dreams perfection!

I have found that i really resonate with Gammells pieces and feel the message of them beautifully represents the aesthetic of what rough dreams and ice creams is all about- 
Finding beauty in obscurity

Most well known for his illustrations for Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 
these are the images i have shared with you this evening.
Enjoy x

Amazing!


Loving our little friend on the right!



Downside up 

perfect 


I hope you enjoyed them- isn't he amazing? 

Peace out,

SAIBH EGAN PHOTOGRAPHY

-EMPTY HOUSE-


This is a shoot i did with the fantastic Saibh Egan Photography at the beginning of the year.
It was something we did for pure enjoyment and creativities sake (Saibh's your girl for those kind of things). I Got to really style for my own ideals in this one and Siabh got to really experiment and flex her photog skills :)

I have published a few of these images but never blogged about them aaand i have included some more never seen before ooooh :)

Below is the great mood board Saibh sent me for this shoot- i think its sweet but eerie? Such a delightful combination.

Model- me of course :)
Photography- Saibh Egan Photography
Styling/ Hair/ make up- all by me.

Above is the beautiful Erykah Badu- 
the inspiration for the make up below :) 
(also Saibhys great idea!)


 Loving the background imagery :)
