The return of my
Visual Inspiration Collections is upon us and I’ve been saving up a trove of delightful visuals and images to impress you with. Being a huge digital hoarder I thought it was time to put another collection together seeing as the last one was waaaaay back in October.
These Inspiration Collections will feature a selection of photography, art, design, Instagram finds and a few of my own personal snaps. If you would like to be featured on the next roundup please email me or use the
#styledivision tag as it gives me a chance to see your work.
CAUGHT MY EYE – PHOTOGRAPHY
Slow Magic has become one of my favourite artists recently with a sound that’s a perfect mix of upbeat SBTRKT and downtempo Teen Daze. The promo shots from his single ‘ Girls‘ caught my attention and now all I want to do is play around with my camera and huge clouds of pink smoke.
Cereal Magazine continues to raise the bar and shows what really can be done with a mag these days. In one of my favourite posts this year, Rich Stapleton travels around Iceland and manages to capture the clean and simple beauty of the place.
Mike Skinner remains one of my personal heroes and inspirations. From humble beginnings with The Streets and running The Beats label with Ted Mayhem, Mike is now producing music, making films and running Tonga, a fantastic pub rave night in London. Mike Skinner….so remains one of my favourite blogs to follow and a constant source of inspiration

CAUGHT MY EYE – ART & DESIGN
A new mural in Gaza by the anonymous artist Banksy features a kitten seeming to play with a ball of tangled metal rods as if it were yarn.
Sammy Slabbinck is one of my favourite illustrators. He creates collages with deep meaning and simple juxtapositions. A few more of his pieces have been shown below.
There is always an abundance of beautiful architecture and design out there but the recent renovation of an old Victorian paper factory in Hampshire, Laverstoke Mill takes the cake. Architects Joseph Paxton and Thomas Heatherwick redesigned the pair of curved glass greenhouses that are now used for growing the tropical and Mediterranean plants for the Bombay Sapphire gin.
