An illustration design embellishing an ’Alpha’ concept logo, commissioned via Crew website. The illustration’s composition is inspired by the ‘Allegory of Prudence’ by Titian and its content combines a three-headed entity (one Bear, one Lion and one Wolf) within the typographic ‘Alpha’ logo. Each animal is intended to signify a particular virtue the brand wanted to evoke (Lion = Courage; Bear = Strength; Wolf = Loyalty). The logo was created for branding purposes and labels, with the illustration having to be capable of being printed on black and white apparel.

Examples of personalised illustrations created for use in letter-pressed wedding invites. I have worked on a number of such commissions, which have been offered to me via the Crew website. On the invitation with a map, I only created the illustrated icons and topographic elements such as mountains and forests.

I very much enjoyed being a small part of people’s “Big Day”. If you’re looking for help with a wedding invite please don’t hesitate to drop me an email.

This Spring/Summer 2015 Collection continued with the hand-drawn aes­thet­ics from the preceding Autumn/Winter collection and applied this style to create designs that depicted examples of children’s natural curiosity and their fascination with exploration. Hence the characters are active, dynamic and expressive of inquisitiveness, wonder and joy.

The Autumn/Winter 2015 was informed by the popularity of the previous year’s use of 3d models. Thus it accentuated this more stylised approach within the illustrations. The designs were also specifically designed so that more inventive methods of incorporating them into clothing could be used (e.g. embroidered rather than printed and/or patches of different textured fabric embedded within them).

This is a selec­tion of illus­tra­tions cre­ated for the Spring/ Summer 2014 Collection. The three brand char­ac­ters of Mesamis (Bear, Rabbit and Elephant) were designed as 3d mod­els and then used as the basis for all the images.

The Autumn/ Winter 2014 Collection was also inspired by the 3d mod­els. However, this series explored more hand-drawn aes­thet­ics. The illustrations reflect the core brand val­ues of Mesamis and consequently depict the characters as activ­e and dynam­ic, as well as emphas­ising a close rela­tion­ship between child and parent.

“Wheel of Fortune”

series of group exhibitions called "Fingers Crossed"

  • Fingers-Crossed-Karolful
  • Fingers-Crossed-Karolful2

 

Karolful was invited to participate in a series of three pop-up exhibitions in Manchester, each on one of the Fridays the 13ths in 2015. These exhibitions are inspired by the notions of luck, chance, fate and coincidence. The first two took place in February and March at Rogue Studios and AWOL Studios respectively. These have been curated by Katarzyna Jablonska and the final instalment is scheduled for the 13th of November 2015. The poster image was designed by Alex Young.

Drawing inspiration from Greek Mythology, Karolina explores the motif of Rota Fortunae (Wheel of Fortune). It is a concept representative of the capricious nature of fate and luck and of how within our personal narratives we habitually represent time as a cycle between prosperity and disaster. For the purpose of this exhibition Karolful introduced a new technique which blends a graphite monotype with traditional pencil drawing. These drawings have been produced in collaboration with the dancers Louis Lever and Joe Thomas.
