I follow the fantastic stylist @charlottelovely. As I was scrolling through my feed one morning, ignoring my daughters pleas for biscuits at 6.30am in the morning, I stumbled across Charlotte’s latest styling work – “What are these whimsical prints contained within these creatively styled shots“, I asked myself. I immediately investigated and discovered Bryony Fripp.

What I adore about Bryony’s illustrations are their soft, simple and whimsical nature. They make me feel happy! I adore hand drawn illustrations, with their kooky lines and lovely textures. Perfectly imperfect. I think there’s a real backlash against shiny ‘Apple’ web 2.0 design and vector graphics at the moment. And Bryony is a master at making the drawn line look light and delicate. Like a spring day, fresh as a daisy. (I’m skipping around with my laptop as I write 😉 ) She also uses additional elements such as ribbon and paper on the print, to create a 3D, hand finished piece of art.

This is how Bryony describes her work:

I like to draw everyday objects and give them a quirky twist, this mostly includes food and dogs! Basically anything that makes me smile!
I always always hand draw all of my line work as I have such a love for the look of a hand drawn line and then digitally add a touch of colour.

I loved her work so much I ordered the ‘Spoons’ Print for my 3rd wedding anniversary. It’s gorgeous. Packaged beautifully, lovely design and colours and Bryony customised the text for me too. Even her thank you card was a work of art. The ‘Spooning’ print will be placed in my bedroom so the hubby and I can never forget our anniversary again. (Confession: it’s me who usually gets the date wrong!)
Enjoy Bryony’s work. I have a few more on my wish list -I  love the ‘eggs in the morning’ print. Check out her Not On the High Street shop and Bryony’s Instagram account to see more of her gorgeous work. I guarantee it will leave you with a smile on your face.
