Flora Waycott and Melissa Iwai - my super talented Surtex helpers!

This is a blog post all about Flora Waycott and Melissa Iwai and their work.   They will be helping me on my stand at Surtex and I'm so pleased.  I was quite concerned about how I would manage on my own and to have their support is just invaluable - especially as they themselves are so very talented and accomplished.

Flora Waycott
These are some of Flora's beautiful designs.  Please go and see more of her work at www.florawaycottdesign.com.  Flora is English with a Japanese mother, living in New Zealand - so she has plenty of interesting influences to draw from!

She  freelances creating childrens designs, surface patterns and illustrations. Clients past and present include Victoria's Secret, Pumpkin Patch, Urban Outfitters, Sainsbury's and Paul Frank.  Her surface patterns are published in the wonderful book "Print and Pattern Kids" by Bowie Style of leading UK pattern blog Print and Pattern.

Melissa Iwai
Here are some of Melissa's fantastic illustrations.  Please have a look at her website www.melissaiwai.com.  Melissa is from California and lives in Brooklyn, New York.
She is a freelance illustrator and has illustrated around 20 children's books, one of which she wrote, Soup Day. (See the first two illustrations!)
Her clients include Viking, Simon and Schuster, Henry Holt/MacMillan, Harper Collins, Harcourt,  Houghton-Mifflin, Scholastic, Hyperion Books for Children, McGraw-Hill, Karben/Lerner, Random House, National Geographic, Highlights for Children and BUST Magazine.


Thank you so much for offering to help Flora and Melissa.  I can't wait to meet both of you! See you in a few months!! xx
