Design Diary - Evie Kemp

When NZ illustrator Evie Kemp isn't making awesome animal art prints, she's hanging with her two cute pups, or working with Amy Clarke on their new textile print brand, Rust and Stardust

The first thing I did this morning was… 
Take my dog Bonnie down to the park to play fetch before it was too hot. I also checked emails and packed up orders ready for my super-lovely courier, Jeff, to collect before heading off to my studio. 

The highlight of my day was… Peanut Butter brownie and coffee at Humbug cafe with Amy (studio mate, Mylarke and other half of Rust & Stardust). We pretend we’re going to talk business but very rarely do. When you work with someone it’s so good to still be able to have solid ‘friend’ times, also to slack off, and eat amazing peanut butter brownie. 

A challenge in my day was…
I’m working on some commissions at the moment and it’s always a challenge to get them just right. For most of my work I’m primarily my own client so when I have two sets of eyes to please, I always find it more of a challenge. A challenge I feel I face almost daily is trying to find a solid block of time for creative work, also, avoiding talking on the phone - a very real challenge. 

One thing I learned… I’m not sure ‘learned’ is the right word, but I am now very up-to-date with the shows from London Fashion Week. 

Something I achieved... was completing a portrait of a very handsome pug, it’s for a present so I can’t show it just yet but I’m very happy with it. 

If I could, I would... hang out with kittens and puppies, then go for a cocktail on the waterfront at 5pm ...every day.
