Maki Lou Lou first rocked up to my studio with a plastic octopus on her necklace, a sandwich embroidered on her jumper and a cup cake for me iced with the word “Boss”. I had a sneaking suspicion I was going to like her.

Maki studied illustration but has since gone on to turn her sketches into costumes, props and sets. Her drawings have a very particular graphic retro look with cheeky characters that are undisputedly an extension of her comical self. I’m a big fan of this new talent and can’t wait to see where her distinctive charming ridiculous works will crop up.
