Introducing BELLE LANGFORD: illustrator, artist and writer.
A patch of blue sky filtered through palm trees. The dog-eared pages of a book of Pablo Neruda poems. The crisp corners of a perfect white shirt. Belle Langford – Sydney-based illustrator and writer – draws inspiration from the romance and the beauty of everyday life.
Langford’s illustrations have been commissioned by brands including ELLE Australia, Harper's Bazaar, AHD Paper Co, Karla Špetić, The Base by Lara Bingle, Alice McCall, Loving Earth and Impulse Fragrances. Her writing has appeared in Cosmopolitan Australia and online at Elle Australia, Coco Republic and La Garconne. Her blog Hella Blissed – founded in 2011 – is an industry insider-favourite, a place of retreat for Langford where she can share her original illustrations and works of creative non-fiction.
Languid and romantic, Langford’s illustrative style is distinguished by its lush colour palette and crisp detail. Using watercolour, ink, digital manipulation and mixed-media, her illustrations are arrestingly cinematic. In prose, Langford makes sumptuous and soulful her personal experiences and thoughts. Drawing from a rich world of poetry, literature, art theory and history, Langford writes in a style that is all her own.
