It's been a busy 12 months and I'm only just catching up on some posts I've been meaning to write for a year. One of them is the Orla Kiely AW15 presentation...better late than never.Step into a New York library and meet the most chic librarians at the Orla Kiely AW15 presentation. It was a feast for the eyes, especially for anyone with a childhood daydream of becoming a librarian and spend days stamping library cards and categorising books in their designated shelves.

Sitting at the front with my illustrator pal Emma Block, I got to admire up close a colourful parade of canary yellow, blush pink, soft knitwear, side plaits and eye-catching shoes. The shoes! Orla Kiely collaborated with Clarks to create these beauties which were every bit as special her outfits. I've captured Orla's fashion presentation with quick 5 minute marker pen drawings.
Here are some of the pens I used for my illustrations. They are great for building colour with highlight and shading. You can watch a time-lapse video of my illustration process.
