{From tea towels to fabulous illustrations}

Over at Bright.Bazaar we can’t stand washing up! Cooking is great, but all the clearing up after is the bit we dread. However, the days of dread could well be over because the fantastic people over at Inside Out magazine have featured some gorgeous and very arty must-have kitchen accessories in the form of tea towels in their latest issue (you can see an online preview of the current issue here). Our favourite has to be the ‘Third Drawer Down – Hairy Lady’ tea towel by illustrator Camilla Engman (seen top of above image). Having fallen head-over-heels for this quirky and colourful tea towel, we set out to find out more about the artist behind it. Camilla’s work has been commissioned by a whole host of high profile clients, including the New York Times, Converse and Google. The Swedish based artist likes to inspire her audiences by drawing in a way that lets people grasp the notion of the picture, but still lets them keep hold of their personal interpretation. We think you’ll agree that her work is scrummy:

I think I need to collect a few tea towels too, to make washing up a bit cheerier – great selection :)
