Simon Reeves

Happy Monday everybody!

Today I am featuring the uniquely interesting work of Simon Reeves, a freelance textile designer based in Spain. The talented designer recently got in touch and wrote that he believes in "chasing my dreams and working in something that I love!". What a lovely positive statement!

His work is a mixture of quirky graphic illustration, and pretty patterns. I especially love the 'Drink Tea' design as well as the detailed wooden houses. You can find more of his lovely work by clicking here. Good luck Simon!

Enjoy! Kelly :)
