Wednesday Wicked Design

It's that time of the week already!

On Sunday at the Racecourse Road Carnival I was really lucky to be next to designer Racheal of Penelope and Pip. Fellow BrisStyle designer Racheal is a Brisbane based illustrator who draws pictures of a girl called Penelope, a cat called Pip and their ever-increasing list of lovely friends!

Her original designs are drawn on paper, in photoshop and illustrator. Each unique print has it's own story attached, allowing the purchaser to immerse themselves in the world of make-believe that is Penelope and Pip.

Ensuring that she treads on the planet lightly, Rachael uses Hahnemuhle fine art archival paper made from sustainable forestry practices and produced with green energy. Rachael also reproduces her gorgeous designs onto fabric made from organic cotton, certified by Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS).

Penelope and Pip designs are available for sale through etsy. Some of my favourite designs are shown below.

Racheal's website shows a wonderful gallery of her works. It's where she updates you on which markets she will be at, and is a place where you can follow her on her creative journey.
