Welcome to a brand new feature for Fresh on Folksy. Every month I am planning (best laid plans etc) to run a feature based on a single Folksy seller. This gives me a chance to show in more depth the work of a single maker/s and gives me the opportunity to write a bit more and explore things beyond Folksy, such as websites and blogs covering the maker.
This month it is my great pleasure to run a feature on Sally Boyle, graphic designer/illustrator/all round good egg. Just in case you missed my feature on Sally here is is again:
I just love the balance of this image, I think it works on all levels, humour, romance, and down right naughtiness! Anyway, onto the feature, there's much to know.
Sally is a freelance graphic designer based in Yorkshire and is a busy lady. When she's not overrun with work she runs her own blog (a good read but please do come back), and sells her own work through her Folksy and Etsy shops. I took a look at both shops and her website and I have picked my own personal selection of favourites, don't shoot me if you disagree with my selection:
Woodland cushion front
Illustrations for cushion prints
As you can see Sally's illustrations consist of a mix of styles but are bursting with a generosity of colour and detail which is hard to ignore. The clever soul has also managed to bag herself a slot in the most excellent Print & Pattern Book 2, alongside 99 other heavy weight designers and illustrators, no easy task as you can imagine.
I hope you have enjoyed finding a little more out about this month's featured Folksy seller, Sally Boyle. Should you wish to commission Sally for a special project of your own you can contact her through her website.
Time to extract my rooted features from in front of the computer and grab a slice of the real world, see you soon folks, until then adios...
