Fashionary X V&A X Lesley Barnes

Fashionary collaborate with V&A museum in London and illustrator, Lesley Barnes to create a fashion sketchbook to celebrate the exhibition titled “The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014” during 5 April - 27 July 2014.

UK Artist Lesley Barnes created a ‘concertina’ illustration inspired by Italian fashion from the 1850s, the end of the Second World War, to the present day. This was to compliment their exhibition ‘The Glamour of Italian Fashion’ with the story is explored through the key individuals and organisations that have contributed to Italy’s reputation for quality and style.

The illustrations have been used on a whole host of gift products and the Fashionary sketchbook was a key piece in the collection and we decided to use the bold optical 1960s designs for its cover. This illustration was initially inspired not only by the optical mono prints of the 1960s but also by the uniforms that Pucci created for Baniff airlines (including the famous ‘bubble’ helmet). For the Fashionary cover we decided to simplify this design so it was really graphic and eye catching and that’s how we came to the final cover - two colours and optical patterns! 

This special fashionary in womens edition is created exclusively for V&A and it can be purchased now at the V&A shops in London. For more information, please visit Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

Thanks Cheyne! 


Georgia’s currently in negotiations for something exciting (for me) right now so her interactive adventure is on a hiatus. In prep for some ebooks I made some chapter covers. Whether these will ever be seen in context I don’t know… but here they are! St.Georgia returning soon.


I was asked by the very lovely Alison Sampson to contribute a pin-up to hers and Nathan Edmonson’s Genesis, out today from Image comics (even if you’re not near a comic shop, you can buy it here - it’s very good).

To celebrate its launch Alison, along with fellow pin-up contributor Robert Ball (who is also very good - can you see a theme here?) and myself will be signing copies at Forbidden Planet in London on Saturday. Come along! We might go for a beer or two afterwards to which you are of course invited.

Here’s all the info you need

The latest in the Spring Classic Series is the Gent-Wevelgem race held every year around March and one for the sprinters. There’s often a few hefty climbs thrown into the route each year since it started in 1934 and is now an essential part of the cycling calendar. This print is now available in the online store here.

A nice little project from Penguin Books in the UK, I was asked to illustrate the cover for an upcoming novel by David Bezmozgis. 

I’ve included some of the sketches that didn’t make it to final - we went down a few different routes before settling on the final.
