  • Some close ups of a WIP in my new @mosseryco sketchbook! 🖌 I’m hoping the likeness is ok enough to tell who it is?.. someone I’ve been meaning to draw for ages! 
__________
Watercolours: Kuretake Gansai Tambi + Winsor and Newton. Paintbrush for detail: ProArte (3/0). Sketchbook paper: 300 gsm watercolour paper and I’m painting on both sides without any issues since the paper’s nice and thick. Love the texture too; not too rough a grain 👌

  • I LOVED Gaga’s pre-MET Gala look last night, I had to paint it! (bit messy but I still like it!). Conveniently I have a black stripey theme going in my new @mosseryco sketchbook and this Marc Jacobs dress couldn’t be more perfect for it. 🖤 #METGaga @ladygaga (not sure why the images are such low quality sorryy 😣)

  • Here’s an illustration I did recently of beloved American cookbook author and chef, Julia Child for The Washington Post Magazine! (April 14 2019 issue) ✨🍽

The illustration was for an article about her first home on Olive Street, Georgetown (which is currently being renovated @jewelonolive). ✨ I loved having The French Chef playing whilst working on this, what an iconic personality! ❤️ #bonappetit (Thanks to Art Director Christian Font!)

  • LOVE love my new personalised sketchbook! (Thank you @Mosseryco!) ✨ I almost went for a marble/lava cover design, but my heart was set on the black stripes. 🖤 (I’ll make that a theme for my first few drawings since a few portraits have already come to mind). I figured it’s time I got back into my old sketchbooking habits in between my client projects. So I can’t wait to try this out! ☺️✨ Swipe for a bunch of faves from my old journals from 2011 (bottom right), 2012 (three on the left) and 2014 (top right) 📚

I’ll check back in soon with a little review but if any of you are interested in getting a Mossery sketchbook anyway, you can use my discount code ‘HELEN15’ via the link in my bio for 15% off! ✨#mossery #withmossery #ad

  • (2/2) Happy Birthday @ladygaga! ❤️✨ Super quick #procreate drawing I did today of Gaga from the 2019 SAG Awards. (swipe for timelapse! I’m still getting the hang of drawing digitally). I was listening to Edith Piaf which reminded me of Gaga’s new tattoo (the lettering is based on that!)

  • I drew the inspirational Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to celebrate the release of #OnTheBasisOfSex - in UK cinemas 22nd Feb! The film explores the beginnings of her career as an advocate for gender equality ⚖️ Very thankful for the opportunity to work on this and get to know Ruth's story! 🏛✨

  • Playing the Ziggy Stardust album at maximum volume today (as it should be!). It’s been a while since I’ve listened to it fully, after months mainly consisting of the Berlin era onwards.. Returning to Ziggy after so long just made sense today. I feel like I’m listening to it for the first time again and I’m welling up! Magical!! Miss you David. #BowieForever and ever ✨⚡️
