Cosmetic Collage

With bundles of talent and oodles of endless witty quips MH Jeeves is one of our favourite cartoon illustrators around. She's incredibly modest and incredibly funny and always willing to share her personal persuits with us. Here we see her upcyling her makeup into humorous compositions. It's amazing what you can create with a mascara wand!

Stylish Stokey!

We have some colleagues amongst us who'd argue they're the most stylish in the CIA office but they don't really live in Stoke Newington anymore, so surely Sarah our finance guru is in the lead? Sorry Ben. 

 

Jitesh Patel's recent hand drawn piece mapped out the fashion and style of one of our favourite neighbourhood's for Metropolitan Magazine. We think the composition in this right on the money!

Fashun!

Fix up look sharp! Paul Oakley's sleek and well tailored figure is cutting edge with it's sharp graphic vectors. This piece was commissioned for a fashion book cover, unfortunately it didn't quite make the cut for print despite it's serious style. What can we say - that's fashion!
