We met one half of creative duo illopetals when Leon came to a recent Bearwood Tapestry evening. Leon (‘illo’) is the character designer of the partnership, who naturally draws imaginative and quirky characters with a quick, freestyle approach, while Deborah (‘petals’) is a natural doodler and adds repeating patterns, detail and colour in a bold, playful way. Together their styles seamlessly fuse to create imaginative stories and abstract worlds.
We love this, from their website:
“They are interested in a diverse range of themes including nature, people, culture, technology, fashion and music and want their work to convey simplistic messages of happiness, well-being and love.” We think they’ll be right at home at the Crafty Pantry! Come and see their work on Saturday 17th September, 11am – 4pm, Bearwood Baptist Church Hall.
