Colour Me Happy!



Today's palette inspiration is a colour match made in heaven!
Fuscia pink paired with yellow ochre packs a serious punch .... mix in a dusky
grey and some soft neutrals and we're on to a winner.

Spotted P&C designs!

It's so nice to see our designs come to life out there in the big wide world, and when the in-house teams do such fabulous jobs creating gorgeous products featuring our illustrations, it makes us very happy inside!
Here's a few we've spotted recently...


We love this drawstring bag from Accessorize with Gemma's beautiful fox illustration.




Lou's graphics look lovely on these pieces above from
Boots Mini Club in store now!


We were super happy to see these bedding designs Laura worked on for Bluezoo in Debenhams
and we love the styled rooms, how nice do they look!


And lastly, some fab little pieces of nightwear for your little ones, available from TU Clothing.
Babywear and girlswear pyjamas featuring Gemmas lovely girl illustration and Lou's little monsters, woodland designs and a pretty owl in her winter wonderland palace.

It might be officially autumn, but we're clinging to the last few days of summer with
this beautiful Asian influenced Mini Trend. 

We've been so inspired by this gorgeous painterly take on paisleys and florals, and the pretty yet rich jewel colours.

Summer seems to have disappeared slightly here in the UK, whatever the weather, there's nothing like a trip to the big apple to brighten our day!

We've rounded up the guys... and even managed to persuade the dogs and bears to travel together nicely!

P&C will be exhibiting at Printsource on the 8th and 9th August, at Hotel Pennsylvania. We'll have an array of shiny new artworks across baby, kids wear, interiors, stationery, fabric and much more, all inspired by the latest trends.

We hope you'll pop by so we can make your day a little brighter too!

As a studio full of lovely ladies we know a thing or two about girl power, and this mini trend 
is the perfect reflection of that. 

With fun illustrations showing women of all kinds, this is one trend we're hoping will stick around.

Who runs the world? Girls!

The weather is feeling a bit grey again here, so we're all feeling in need of a lovely fresh colour palette ...just like this one! Pretty and girly with a mix of pastel pink and a soft teal - our favourite!

Kate Pugsley is an illustrator we’ve admired for quite a while, so when we saw those gorgeous embroidered kitties we did a little squeal! Kate has collaborated with italian brand Lazzari on this collection of fun prints, including one featuring her signature fashion girls. We love this awesome combo of illustration and fashion and would love to get our hands on and of these fab shirts. New studio uniform perhaps?

We can't wait for spring, and this mood board says it all. Loose brush strokes and textured daubs of paint in beautiful palettes of pinks and teals make for a very pretty, painterly sight indeed!

Here's one trend that doesn't seem to be going away just yet... teeny illustrated people, doing everything from surfing and partying to visiting the art gallery! Spotted on all kinds of prints, graphic and painterly, on textiles and stationery, and everything in between. We're loving life in miniature!
