Kate Bingaman-Burt is an illustrator based in Portland, OR, USA.  Kate has a very unique & quirky illustrative style as she creates drawings, prints, typography, textiles, patterns the list is endless. Since 2002 Kate has been creating illustrations based on consumption. Each time Kate purchases something she draws it in her illustrative way, something she has been doing since 2006. Kate uses a variety of colours within her work & I love the diversity of her designs. Kate also has an online shop & a blog which is updated daily. Enjoy, Hannah.

Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters have some new crazy prints this season amongst dresses, tops, shorts & leggings. There are a variety of prints including animal, tribe, florals, damask the list is endless. I love the combination of animal & damask print on the dress in image 3 particularly the colours, there is also a little bit of lace detail on the top too. Enjoy, Hannah

Wanelo & Pinterest

Good morning everyone! 
Recently we have set up online profiles on Wanelo and Pinterest, which makes it very easy to see all of Rachael's online collections in one place! From her collaborations with DENY Designs to her creations with Seascape Lamps, you can view them all online!
One of the great things about Wanelo is that you can create shopping lists and wish lists online, that you can share! There is even a 'pin it' button that lets you pin straight to Pinterest! Have fun sharing and visit Rachael's Wanelo profile here!
Pinterest has now become an essential creative tool for 'pinning' creative ideas and influence onto an online clipboard, and just like wanelo you can use it as your very own online shopping list! You can see all of Rachael's products on her Pinterest profile, enjoy pinning!
