Keep an eye on Sharon and I

Sharon Tulloch is an illustrator and a graphic artist. If you have visited the e-store socute.biz, you will have for sure noticed her cocktail of hand-drawn and computer-generated illustrations. Sharon was born in London, spent time in New York and currently lives in sunny and colorful Marseille (France) where she moved many years ago. I believe her culture and mobility is reflected in her work, very fresh and full of life, with characters and figures leaping out at you, possessing a haunting innocence. Sharon works on brand identity, logos, illustrations, children’s books, web design and graphics for items such as bags, t-shirt, and much more. Her latest projects include the 2008 Spring catalogue of New York based jewelry designer ginette_ny. Keep an eye on Sharon’s work, contact her for projects you may have: her versatile style, her graphic talent and her adaptation skills are precious. www.sharon-and-i.net.

Portraits of motherhood

June 19, 2010

US based photographer Davina Zagury did many projects around childhood, starting with a beautiful story on vintage toys called “The Land of Lost Toys”, published in Milk Magazine in 2004. Later she worked, in collaboration with the store Pomme, on “The Doudou project”, featuring children and their favorite teddy or dolls followed, a couple of years later by a story calls “Sibblings”. When she became a mother (her little boy is now 2), she thought she would love to have a professional picture of her and her son. That made her think it could be a great project to work on, that would give a wonderful opportunity to other moms.  She set up a studio for Mother’s Day weekend and she photographed 26 mothers with their children. Davina says it was challenging but everyone had lots of fun and the results came out beautiful. Unforgettable experience and precious portraits.

Kid’s Collection 3

June 18, 2010

COUV_KIDSCO_web.jpg

The third edition of Milk Collections is out, featuring over 150  brands, and 1000 silhouettes for Fall/Winter 2010-2011. A great tool for everyone, from children’s industry insiders to parents who want to browse the best children’s collections before they hit the stores. 192 pages of excitement (you want to buy everything), but I had a special crush on BOdeBO, Dandy Star, Surface to Air, Wafflish Waffle and Petit Lucas du Tertre (for their great sense of humour).

TV must see show

May 9, 2010
If you have a chance to be in the US this week, don’t miss 9 By Design on Bravo TV (Tuesday May 11 at 10pm).  This new show about Design just started a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that it’s really worth watching it for both the new way of approaching the subject, and for the peep into the incredible Novogratz family. Robert and Cortney Novogratz are one of a kind couple, funny, full of energy, and also parents of 7 children, the youngest being just a over 1 year. The family lives in the heart of Manhattan, and the parents successfully run their own design company. The coming episode will feature the re-design of a client’s office and promises to be once again very unique and much fun.
