In the past year I have spent quite a bit of time researching illustrators for various projects. There are a lot of amazing illustrators out there and I have about five peoples work that I absolutely love and follow religiously. Someone whose work really caught me eye is Stephen Campbell, not so much for his straightforward illustrations (which are also fab) but for his stitched work which is so much fun.
This work centers mainly around the worlds of fashion, beauty and fragrance. He has some really beautiful pieces taking inspiration from iconic fragrance bottles.
This is a very small selection of some of the simpler stitched illustrations in this portfolio. I just love how they appear so homemade and crafty and yet so chic and sophisticated.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
