Well hello again! We’re quite the ones for exciting updates, no?
We can now confirm that the sixth designer collaborating with us is Jodie Clay, of Jolly and Hodie.
Jolly and Hodie is a childrenswear range, designed and crafted by Jodie. The clothes are created using traditional crafting techniques such as patchworking, and the patterns are drafted by Jody from original 70s blocks. Find Jolly and Hodie on etsy and folksy.
This is a proof of Jodie’s design for Mimi and Will.
And talking of proofs, here’s the proof of Lucy Farfort‘s design, Jelly Loves Ice Cream.
Our second design is ‘Winter of Our Discount Tents’ by Laura Donald. This was an existing design that Laura had, that she’s licensed to us for children’s shirts.
We’re offering in it yellow and brown inks, printed on a natural/ white organic tee.
Laura blogs at dropstitch. As well as having mad illustrating skillz (as the young people, er…, don’t say), she’s a sewer and a crafter- you can check out some of her projects on her flickr stream. She also apparently used to be in a band called Annalise And The Messiah. Oh yes. Read about it on dropstitch.
We’re going to be updating this blog with pictures of the final t-shirt designs and some more about the artists and designers who we’re working with. First up is Neil Slorance , who designed Supersaurus for us. It’s available in white and is screenprinted onto an organic cotton t-shirt. Like all our designs, it’s suitable for boys or girls. Find out a bit more about Neil after the pics:
it’s been quite a day for us here at Mimi and Will. We launched the campaign on Indiegogo (yay!) and had our first order (double yay!). So, as it’s Saturday night, I thought I would collapse in an exhausted heap relax, and see what the rest of the internets has to offer this evening.
I didn’t have to look far before I found this beautiful project by artist Mica Angela Hendricks. Mica’s a professional illustrator who, reluctantly at first, allowed her four-year-old daughter to finish off her illustrations. The results are amazing.
