New work for Hand and Hand Soap and Anthropologie

Last summer I was working on underwater themed work for Hand in Hand Soap and Anthropolgie, and it has just hit the shops. I love how it has turned out. Hand in Hand Soap always manage to do beautiful things with my illustrations. The new limited edition ocean love collection available exclusively at Anthropologie, with the sale of each product directly impacting the preservation of clean ocean waters.hand in hand coral emma blockhand in hand coral emma blockhand in hand coral emma blockhand in hand coral emma blockcoral emma blockA work in porgress shot of my original gouache painting.

Studio Session Talks at The Rag Factory

emma block karolin schnoorYesterday I hosted two informal seminars at the Rag Factory in Brick Lane. In the morning I hosted Illustration Insights with Karolin Schnoor, which gave new and aspiring illustrators an insight into the industry. In the afternoon I hosted Creative Business Boost with Lilly Taylor, which focused on the power of social media and branding. The day was a huge success; I had so much fun and I’ve been overwhelmed by the lovely feedback I’ve received on Twitter.  Public speaking is something I used to be very nervous about, but now I love the opportunity to connect with other creative people. The factory setting was transformed by Your London Florist who created a dramatic floral feature wall and stunning jam jar arrangements. By the way, the washi tape use to secure the flowers is my own design, and you can buy a roll on etsy.studio sessionsflower wall A huge thank you to Karolin and Lilly for joining me as guest speakers, to Your London Florist for making it look so stunning and to everyone who attended!
