Moving on from people who paints “catchy” phrases on leather to actually something a bit more interesting. I found these two CSM graduates Luke Brooks & Beth Postle. What they do is far more colourful, weird in the good way, contemporary and definitely something you would expect from CSM graduates. They are two independent designers who studied MA Fashion Programme at Central Saint Martins. Specialising in unusual textile techniques their work if full of eccentric shapes and bold colourful designs.
Above is a photo of my sketchbook that is dedicated to those two designers. Instead of doing some kind of response separately I decided to first “decorate” the pages with inspired from their textiles illustrations. I tried to go with the same sort of bold bright colours and same style of drawing. First, it looked a bit childish to me but with time I really start to dig it. To give more credits to the designer, I think they’re being pretty original which is rare, so I rate that.
