As a regular reader of Pip's blog, I was inspired by all her colourful blog posts as well being inspired by her shop Meet Me at Mike's – one of the shops I have to visit whenever I walked on Brunswick Street. It is always colourful and it makes me happy. Therefore I expressed that same happiness through my typographic illustration.
I used materials and found objects to create this illustration. I love to make things and I am also a collector of random objects. I often found myself keeping a lot of second hand stuff (such as a full collection of sewing threads, fabrics, woods etc.) from friends, relative and through op-shopping because I have the "I might use it one day" in mind.
I personally would like to thank you CWC for given me the opportunity to create a title page for them. It gave me the opportunity to make my ideas to reality; to create an embroidery into a typographic illustration, also to tidy up the amount of sewing threads I have got at home.
