Vintage Style Illustration and Hand-Lettering for Libelle Magazine

I was approached by Dutch weekly magazine Libelle to do some illustrations in the style of my Quintessentially British print, for a special London themed issue of their magazine .

The first one was to accompany an article about all the things we have to do in the course of our daily lives, such as washing and ironing, shopping, gardening, walking the dog etc.

Following the style of my Quintessentially British print, I combined vintage retro illustrations with hand drawn letters in a limited colour palette.

The second illustration was to do with London and some of the things that a visitor might like to see and do in the city.

The third illustration was a little more challenging as it was related to fashion… the challenge was to keep the vintage feel of the illustrations but without looking out of date with current fashion trends.

Really enjoyed this brief and being pushed to take an existing piece of work to a new level.
