Alice Edy

 

Alice Edy moved to Cape Town a year ago where she works as a freelance illustrator, typographer and general creator of things. Her latest project being a hand screen-printed line of products called Lionheart. Alice studied Fine Arts at Wits and studied Calligraphy for 5 years while growing up which sparked her love of lettering, drawing and the mixing of the two.

 

Alice often incorporates type into her illustrations and her style is characterised by strong line work and minimal colour.

 

She let us know about her current influences, “In terms of lettering, I’m going through an intense Chaz Bojorquez phase at the moment. Apparently there is part of me (deep down) that is a “cholo” gangster, beneath the floral-granny exterior. In general though, I love the work of Keith Haring, Diane Victor, Karl Kwasney, Dana Tanamachi, Basquiat, Edward Gorey, Brett Murray, Alan Moore. I know there are so many people I am leaving out! I  also love old etchings, and super-kitschy trash-romance novel covers.”

 

Exciting projects coming up for Alice include the next range of KFD skateboard graphics, a series of 3 board graphics all about the occult. She says, “I love the creative freedom that comes with working in the skate industry, there is so much room to be funny, or dark, or weird or all of the above. That seems to work for me.”
