UK FASHION ILLUSTRATOR & ARTIST Helen Bullock PRESENTS HER ‘LOCKDOWN’ PROJECT - THE ALPHABET SERIES
UK Artist Helen Bullock has launched a series of drawings dedicated to the English alphabet, highlighting the unique connection between words and objects. Renowned for her bold prints and strong colour, Helen’s creative interpretation of everyday objects make them seem fun and colourful - a true celebration of our daily lives.
Helen Bullock is a London based Fashion Illustrator and Print Designe who has worked with multiple luxury fashion brands including Louis Vuitton, Celine, Oscar de la Renta and Liberty as well as global publications including Sunday Times Style, GQ Style, AnOther & ShowStudio. Renowned for her bold prints and strong colour, her illustrations are created by hand, maintaining an air of freedom and spontaneity, reflecting Helen’s unique character and exuberant love for life. After a stint in New York, Helen has settled in East London. Despite having no formal art education she gained a place at Central St Martins, and completed her Fashion Print (BA/MA). She now works globally applying her unique aesthetic to the pages of magazines, fabrics of fashion designers and shop windows of UK’s favourite stores.
The artist started working on the ‘Alphabet Project’ while London was in lockdown. Realising that this time made us pay that little bit more attention to those things we may have previously overlooked, it seemed a perfect time to develop the project.
In the shop section of Helen’s website, there is a monthly drop of drawings charting her Journey Through the Alphabet original artworks appear on the first of every month, and are available to purchase until replaced by the next drop.
Apart from personal preferences, the artist is also inspired by friends and followers who are encouraged to share their suggestions each month. Helen says ‘I'm loving the trip down memory lane that happens from time to time - a friend suggested Dewberry, which immediately took me to the Body Shop Dewberry Shower gel from the 90s. Someone else mentioned Feet, which led me to the Funny Feet ice lollies from my childhood!’
Having worked with leading fashion brands such as Lulu Guiness, Louis Vuitton, Celine and Oscar de la Renta, Helen now presents a more personal and intimate project, highlighting the simplicity and beauty of everyday objects and their playful character.
