Bourgeois & Maurice

Good afternoon!

A fun little illustration for Amelia’s Magazine today, which features Cabaret darlings Bourgeois and Maurice. Their outlandish fashion sense makes them such a delight to draw! Their new show ‘Can’t Dance’ (click for a little promotional video!) is on now at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, a venue dedicated to people that can actually dance.

You can read the full interview with the duo by clicking here.

Bubbles at the Market

Good evening!

This is the last little post about my Canadian escapades, honest!
I visited a wonderful, buzzing market in a place called St. Jacobs, which had indoor and outdoor stalls where the Amish were working alongside ‘regular’ folk. All of the smells and colours were quite fantastic and it was a really brilliant trip!
I love to ‘people watch’, and there were some real characters! One such personality was a clown named Bubbles (I think I was drawn over by the balloon animals he seemed to be mass producing). Unfortunately it was very busy so I wasn’t able to stand and draw any of the Amish people’s beautifully understated outfits (photographing them isn’t very polite so I refrained), but I did make a small observational sketch from a vantage point!

If you are ever in Southern Ontario, it’s really worth a visit.

Update!

Good Evening!

I would like to direct your collected attentions to the all new misspearlgrey.com!
New features include a ‘Motion’ section (which is soon to feature an array of projects in which either my illustrations or creations appear) and a shiny new specialist ‘Fashion’ section! I’m so excited with the new look and I hope you will love it as much as I do.

Please do pop by and have a look around at your leisure!

P.S,

A huge thanks goes out to Andy Tyrrell, who has helped me produce something that looks so lovely!
