Oh Wow! – Rising Stars, Chocolate Skulls and a Series of Non-Events.

Today we’re looking at some gorgeous pieces by up-and-coming fashion designers, an illustrated series of awkward “non-events” and a ceramics range that makes us crave licorice. Oh, and since it’s Halloween, we’ve ended off with a bit of creepy goodness.

SIX – The Wander. Collection by Cape Town-based graphic designer and illustrator Maria Magdalena van Wyk.

“The limited edition Wander.doodle range is a series of snippets from my ordinary life made extraordinary through lines of ink. Only 50 prints of each doodle will be available for sale around the world. Each drawing has a special story, poem or song attached to it and some celebrate strong influential women. It showcases my personal adventure as an illustrator.”
