New Illustration

It's has been a while since I published anything new, but this is because I am currently undertaking a work placement with the Alexander McQueen brand, so I am left with little time to focus upon my own output. I have, however, recently completed this illustration, which has been ongoing for quite a while. When I was a smaller Pepper, drawing was one of my favourite things to do, and I would always be experimenting with differwent techniques and styles. However, throughout University, my illustration style became far more graphical, so I undertook this illustration as a means of re-discovering my passion for drawings. The drawing has been completed using only colouring pencils, and for once I forced myself not to outline the entire form in black pen.

Isabella j'adores les sciseaux

As I am sure it is fairly clear, I definitely have more than a fleeting fondness for the scissor. But why is this? Well, I like fashion that has a bit of a meaning and a backbone, as clothing can be such a communicative tool. The humble scissor I feel is one of the most essential tools when it comes to making clothing - so many functions could not be carried out without it. So, my work is a salute to the scissor, because without it I would not be able to carry out any of my work. I like the phrase 'cut here' as it is quite a powerful phrase, an order, and one that almost everyone has said or followed at least once in their lives, even if this involved cutting a token from a cereal box. Also, 'cut here' is something that is applied so often in clothing manufacture that I felt this needed a salute as well.
Love & scissors,
Isabella Pepper

Metal & Enamel

Tuesday, 25 September 2007


After feeling generally uninspired by the crop of necklace jewellery in stores recently, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create something of my own. I used elements typically associated with machinery as I like to try to create something elegant from something conventionally not. As a first attempt, I am quite happy, but I think that this could just be the start of a series of experiments.

Scissors Stripe 2

I have amended my initial idea for a stripe involving scissors to create something more subtle. Ideally, the dotted stripe would be very infrequent if produced in cloth form, so that it could barely be noticed.
