Buy Handmade | Sketch.Inc

Sketch.inc is a stationery and gift shop by designer/maker Becky Kemp. She describes it as a "whimsical world of character design and pattern exploration which can be enjoyed by Children and Adults alike."

Sketch.inc - Ink'd notebooks x3 £8.50 for the set.

My favourite work by Kemp is her ink collection. I'm a monochrome addict so it seems obvious that I would love this collection, but this takes monochrome to another level. The simple block colour border draws you in to the ink pattern, and adds depth to her prints.

Her character design started in 2D form, with cards such as these sweet pastel graphic illustrations of Anna Wintour and Marie Antoinette.

Her need to bring her characters to life lead her to transform them into Kokeshi dolls. This, no doubt, will be a staple of Kemp's brand. Her ability to capture personality and expression in such a simple form astonishes me.

Sketch.inc Kokeshi Dolls - Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, Coco Chanel & Anna Wintour All £35.40 each.

As well as predesigned character Kokeshi dolls, you can get custom made ones of you and your family too! Kemp has thought of it all! Maybe the Ma Bicyclette Gang need to invest in some of these? Team Kokeshi!
