An Interview with illustrator Hattie Stewart

Cheeky and fresh, Hattie Stewart's mag cover doodle-bombs are both en Vogue and 'on' Vogue.

Written by Jessica Cook

Hattie Stewart

London-based Hattie Stewart, a 'professional doodler', originally from Essex, is taking the fashion world by storm with her 'doodle-bombed' magazine covers. Not just limited to putting her mark on mags, she's also done a whole range of stuff from shop-fronts to call-girl cards. Youthful, quirky and comic book-esque, Hattie pens a place where all things happy, cartooney, dark and urban make an appearance. This exuberance with a tint of dark humour reminds me a little of Bart's beloved Itchy & Scratchy. Bold colours, unique characters, a wink and some swag all form part of her signature style. She's a busy girl and Amelia recently mentioned Hattie in a review of Pick Me Up Graphic Arts Festival 2013.
