Headline Honey illustrations
When Swede Sophie Thomsen moved to Brighton earlier this year with her tattoo artist husband Joel and toy dog Billy, she left behind a job as trend manager at European fashion giant Gina Tricot, to set up illustration business Headline Honey.
Building on her degrees in both illustration and fashion design, Sophie takes inspiration from the 1930s-1950s era and burlesque scene, drawing “a lot of long legs, stockings and high heels”.
The Station pub in Hove is currently hosting an exhibition of 14 Headline Honey artworks, showcasing a mix of “burlesque, 1950′s housewives and Victorian-inspired household items”. All limited edition lithographs on display are available for sale and start at just £35 with frame included.
Sophie also works on commissioned projects and says she is always on the look out for new clients: “My ideal project would probably be a concept for a burlesque club – posters, menus, wall decorations etcetera or retro illustrations for a book,” she says.
“At the minute I’m looking for an agent that loves vintage art and illustrations as much as I do that can help me to spread some Headline Honey glamour over the world!”
