HEY! LET’S GET TO KNOW YOU A LITTLE BETTER. INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND TELL US MORE ABOUT YOU AS AN ARTIST
Hello! I’m Meg and I’m feminist, self-love illustrator and content creator from Lincolnshire. I love all things cute + colourful and I'm passionate about spreading empowering and inclusive messages through my art. I want everyone to feel loved + represented when they see my work 🌈
I've worked with amazing clients such as Pinterest, CoppaFeel! and Lucy + Yak; along with running my own small business, www.meggarrodart.com 💛
What was the inspiration behind your collection?
The inspiration behind the collection was to create designs that were empowering, colourful and joyful! I wanted a range of designs that centered around themes of feminism and self love but that were also super cute + colourful 💘
Tell us a bit about how the design process worked?
It started with a meeting with Skinnydip where I was told about the possibilities of the collaboration and then I went away to start sketching! ✏️ I had regular contact + meetings with Skinnydip where we looked at some of my existing illustrations and discussed themes for the project! Once we decided on some designs we loved, we picked our 4 favourites and they went into production! Skinnydip sent me the samples which I loved and we set a date to release!
It was an amazing process and I loved every moment of it! Thanks so much to the Skinnydip team 💖
If you could describe your collection in 3 words what would they be?
Colourful, Empowering + Joyful
What’s your favourite design from the collection and why?
It’s hard to choose because I’ve been changing my phone case everyday to a new design because I love them all so much😂
If I had to choose though, I'd say the rainbow vulvas 🌈 I love the combination of a rainbow of colours with the diverse vulva illustrations.
What’s been your favourite part of working with us?
I got to work with the lovely Susie who was just a joy to work with. She gave me such freedom when it came to designing but was also always on hand to give me her expert advice on any questions I had! Thank you so much Sus 💛
