An Illustrated Affair






Bag packed with my essentials (iPad, Benefit lip gloss, sparkly nail varnish and Stylist magazine) last night I made the four hour train journey home for CHRISTMAS!!! 
It is so exciting to be home again. What is also exciting is this week's issue of Stylist. For a free publication it is impressively good, and week by week consistently creates something beautiful, whether it be a story, fashion shoot or beauty edit. This weeks Christmas issue contains no photos - instead the editor has commissioned thirteen illustrators to draw everything, from the cover page right down to the fashion stories, celebrity interviews and travel reviews. In an age consumed by digital media, it is so refreshing to enjoy some hand crafted artwork, and it is for this reason I have decided to share it with you all. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

2. The beauty edit 
3. Dolce & Gabbana AW12
