new print by Claudette Maskell at Vamp...

One of our lovely customers saw our post on the new prints we are stocking by Claudette Maskell. She particulary liked Claudette's illustration of the name of her collection 'WE-FLOCK' and asked if these were for sale. They weren't, but Claudette loved the suggestion and kindly made us some to stock at Vamp and they are gorgeous! Here are the details:
Screen printed by hand. Signed and dated limited edition. 34cm x 14.5cm. On 300gsm Rosaphine Fabriano. R130.00 unframed.

frankie magazine...

We have just received (once again better late than never!) issue 45 of Frankie Magazine. 

It's a goodie with a lovely article on our very own Angie Batis of Wolves / Good Luck Club / Lucky Pony fame! 

Some of you may know that issue 47 is already on sale in Australia. We have looked into getting the magazines directly from them so that we get the latest issues earlier, but it makes them so much more expensive that we have decided to stick with our local distributor for now and bring them to you at a lower cost. We will see what the demand is and possibly relook at this in the future.

Now on sale at Vamp @ R120.00 .

WE-FLOCK by Claudette Maskell now available at Vamp...

I first came across designer and illustrator Claudette Maskell's work at the Design Indaba in Cape Town earlier this year. It was love at first sight! Claudette was busy with an interview at the time, so I grabbed a card, thinking I would give her a call  the following week. To my delight she beat me to it... and her new prints are now available at Vamp!

Claudette completed her honours degree in Graphic design at the University of the North West, Potchefstroom (2011). In the same year, she was a 3 x Loerie finalist in print (publication), craft and mixed media campaigns. In 2012 Claudette was awarded a stand as an Emerging Creative at Design Indaba 2012. No bad going eh? 

W E - F L O C K is Claudette's collection of hand printed fabrics and illustrations. All illustrations for the collection are first drawn with ink and brush and are then digitally re-worked and finally screen printed onto fabrics or paper.
The name came to her by chance but its significance lies in the fact that we are all naturally drawn towards that which we feel is beautiful and/or intriguing.
The fabrics and prints combine some elements of traditional organic ink illustrations with some very graphic interpretations.She is very much influenced by street art, graffiti, pop culture symbolism as well as elements of mysticism both in cultures, religions and mother nature. She enjoys creating unexpected combinations.Her prints and illustrations also explore aspects of ritualism, tribal art and patterning.
