Paperchase Christmas 2013

I thought I'd share a christmas range following on from my everyday 'hot crush' range at Paperchase. I added a few celebs including Michael Buble as he is Mr christmas after all. 

These are now available online on paperchase's website and will be in store shortly! So go buy them :)


little peek...

...of a windy woodland pattern I started a while ago and haven't got around to finishing, maybe a task for this weekend :) I'm also going to a vintage wedding fair in Harrogate on Sunday with one of my bridesmaids, pretty exciting!



I have been pretty absent from my blog as I've been super busy with full time work and planning my wedding! So i apologise, I may not be posting very often on here until after my wedding to this amazing guy (below) but if you want to keep updated on my life generally you can have a peek at my instagram which is http://instagram.com/lisa__martin  

Speak soon!

Giselle Rolando - designer feature

Giselle Rolando is a designer & keen enthusiast of anything print & pattern related including textile design to stationery to decor. Giselle is based in Cape Town, South Africa and is looking for an agent.
I love the use of bright colours and cute characters in Giselle's work, especially the lovely Christmas design shown below.

Easter - Stylesight

Here are a few illustrations I did for Stylesight - the trend forecasting agency a while ago for Easter.

These are only a select few from the range of illustrations I did :)

GUMTOO - Children's removable tattoos

I recently designed some jungle themed characters for GUMTOO children's removable tattoos in Singapore. Here is a few images of them :)

You can purchase them HERE as well as lots of other cool designs!

Designer - Sammy Smith

Sammy Smith recently contacted me for some advice and then later asked to be featured on my blog. As she was so lovely I couldn't resist but to feature her!

Sammy is a recent graduate in surface pattern design at Swansea Metropolitan university, and is a massive lover of all things japanese and dreams of visiting Tokyo. Her graduate stationery and gift product collection was inspired by all things kawaii and the colour palette came from the radical fashion trends on the streets of Tokyo, in particular Harajuku style.

You can view more of Sammy's work HERE and her instagram which is hellosammyj.


Live work

After working for nearly 1 year in my full time in house design job, i'm finally starting to see some of my designs in stores. (eeek exciting!)
So here is my collection I designed for Paperchase called 'Hot Crush', go buy them in your nearest store or online HERE.

I'm on some medication that is making me super super drowsy so I haven't done any work this week but here is a little owl I did a week or so ago :)


rain rain go away!

I'd really like it to be sunny now please, the British weather is so depressing at the moment. We need some sun!

little peek

I've been doodling today and this is a sneak peek at what I've ended up with...



So I sold my first two designs a few months ago through Just Kids Ltd to a company in Korea, how exciting! 
Here is a look at one of the designs that sold :)


I've been a busy bee again lately! I've been designing lots of fun stuff at work but sadly I can't share that until it is in stores, but for now here is a sneak peek at some other stuff I've been working on in my own time :)
