Curvy6 Launch

Last night I went along to the launch of the 2009 edition of Curvy with a few of the girls from Leeloo.

For those who aren't familiar with Curvy, it's a fabulous all-girl art book put together by the good people at YEN Magazine.

This year's edition features 120 female artists from 39 countries...and it does not disappoint!

All of the art was just amazing, and there was free beer so all in all it was a pretty good night :)

In my eyes, there were two artists who particularly drew my attention.

The first was Bec Winnel of My Charlie Girl.

She is the artist behind the gorgeous illustration on the cover of this month's Peppermint Mag.

This is one of the limited edition prints she had on display last night:

She also had an original on display which absolutely took your breath away.

You can pick up the above print at My Charlie Girl's etsy shop.

My other favourite was an Israeli artist by the name of Shira Sela.

This one is called 'Human Nature' and is just stunning. I ordered a copy from her etsy shop this morning. Be sure to check out her work.

Congrats to all the incredibly talented female artists featured in Curvy 2009. You're amazing!

Yay! What a fun night and fun to get together with some fellow "arty and crafty" types.

Hopefully the first of many get togethers.
