“If I can’t have them, I’ll draw them.”
Sally’s idea to draw, in dreamy watercolour and pencil sketches, the fashion items she lusts has gained her a global audience and illustrious illustration career. (Try saying that after a glass of wine!) I first came across The Lust List on Instagram (where Sally has 45k followers) and quickly discovered that Sally and I lust after many of the same things – Chanel handbags, Hermes notebooks and all sorts of killer heels.
The Lust List has caught the attention of some pretty big names. Sally has been commissioned by the likes of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Australian Traveller to create custom illustrations and she has recently been nominated for a 2014 Cosmo Fun, Fearless Female Award. I was lucky enough to get to speak to the Sydney based artist about the destinations, women and desk space that inspire her work.
Are there any particular destinations that have made it onto the Lust List?
Yes, I recently did a post with a Parisian theme and I did a post for Wolgan Valley when I was there. However, I’m in the process of booking flights to New York for September. I can’t wait!! I’ll be surrendering myself to NY fashion week. NY lifestyle, fashion, amazing people & opportunity! My Lust List posts will no doubt be heavily inspired by everything around me. Stay tuned!
Where do you get most of your work done?
At my home office/living room. I have wonderful housemates that have forgone the living room and accommodated my work station. I have set up a couple of tables, book shelves, cupboards & chairs and added some small details to make my work space inspiring and productive.
Who are the Instagrammers that you admire?
These accounts always keep me inspired and in the loop.
