This is the first of my guest posts for Browns which I’ll be doing every day this week, sharing some of my design inspiration and process, behind-the-scenes snaps and anything else that comes to mind. I hope you enjoy it...

First I thought I’d share some Instagram snaps of pages from my sketchbooks; a taster of some of the inspiration for my current Hyper Nature collection .
