Meeting and working with Marko Matysik could potentially be the highlight of my year. Not only is he a multi-tasking fashion illustrator, belt and accessories designer, and contributes to Vogue, but I get to assist him with his daily design projects and spend time with him which so far has been such an inspirational experience. His studio space is somewhat of a live circus with long legged lovely plants everywhere, belts and fabric samples draped over sofa's, and postcards from every corner in the world piled high up on folded mirrors. He is restricted by nothing and is much like a free artist working on a range of projects that interest him and allow him to travel spontaneously. He has freed my mind into not to be limited by one single status but rather mix and meet my passions and be inspired.
For all you Londoners Marko is having is first solo art show from the 28th of Novemeber to 19th of December at the Fashion Illustration Gallery on Cork Street. Watch this space as I am hoping to write up a fantabolous interview with Marko sometime next week!
