Picture Postcard: The Fantastic Mr Steve

Now, I've always been a little jealous (and sometimes a little weirded out) by the number of talented illustrators who take inspiration from Susie's style outfits. Seeing my girlfriend as a piece of art always provokes a mixture of odd feelings but I have to confess that there has always been a part of me which longed to be captured in a similar way. I never thought it would ever happen though! So, imagine my surprise when I visited our latest blogger follower, one talented Lauren Gentry. Lauren is an Illustration student currently studying at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and has an extremely pretty blog which showcases her artwork. As I trawled through her work I recognised my Unconditional wrap trousers and then I noticed the Yokoo cowl... it was me... well, a variation of me... where my pudgy cheeked face had thankfully been replaced by the head of a fantastic fox. In fact, from now on I'd like to be referred to as the Fantastic Mr Steve or at the very least would like to see Wes Anderson accessorise his interpretation of the Roald Dahl classic with Yokoo knits. I have to thank Lauren for making my week, I am going to sleep now with a huge smile on my face.
Love this. I'm crazy jealous now! May have to see if she'll do me a print to add to the collection. She's even got your slouch right!
