Eyeballs and Skulls

Eyeballs and Skulls

>> I'm a cartoonish simpleton.  I like ridiculously literal things.  I like cho-kawaiiiiii!  I like mega cute.  Therefore prints with little emojis all lined up as per Antipodium's pre spring/summer 2013 hero print, designed by British Vogue's art director Jaime Perlman, with googly eyes, tiny bows and roses cooing at me with their cuteness are always going to be instant pleasers.  In Sydney, I picked up another print that has a slightly more twisted edge but is nonetheless in a similar vein of verbatim bluntness. Illustration power duo Craig & Karl, who just keep adding to their varied and rich portfolio (and incidentally have worked with Antipodium on many of their prints), teamed up with another duo Lyn and Tony, a jewellery label that I discovered whilst out in Sydney, to collaborate on a print.  Eyeballs, pills, Cluedo weapons of murder, keys, bones, molars and skulls come together in a pop macabre arrangement, which graces a range of shirts, collars, scarves, ties and charm pieces.  A skull or an eyeball thrown about can be a cliched sentiment but it's hard not to like them here in its composition.  Like I said, I loves me a memorable motif.

    Love the prints. Not sure if I would wear them though, but I do think this is going to be cute on the right kind of girl.

    I was disappointed not to make it to any of the talks this weekend due to other commitments but have really enjoyed reading your informative round-up this morning. It goes a little way to making up for not being there in person. Thanks Susie!

    I love this print! So cute and pretty, without crossing into twee. I especially like the collars. I can see those being such a good accent piece with a tee and jeans.
