Jayde Perkin is a freelance illustrator and comic book author based in Bristol. She responded to the pattern and textures of each garment using acrylic paint. Pockets were used playfully with things growing out of them. Mermaids appeared on a sailor’s smock, the shades of blue reminding her of the seaside or the night sky.
