Hattie Stewart’s new exhibition Adversary opens next week. We take a look back at her edits of magazine covers including past issues of Wonderland.
East London lady, Hattie Stewart is kind of a big deal. She’s been revitalising old magazine covers as part of a project since 2011 splashing fun over an industry we’re all too guilty of taking too seriously at times. Her trademark boggling eyes are plastered onto just about everything and palette the colour of the old Ceefax homepage encourages a lingering nostalgia for clunky graphics. She’s given not only Wonderland a makeover but also the likes of LOVE, i-D, Paper and even Playboy who gave her a nod of recognition for her cartoon cover-ups of their bunnified stars. Henry Holland‘s a fan too, having collaborated with Hattie on a doodle-filled collection last summer.
Head to the House of Illustration to see her latest works in her Adversary show from 17th April, but our faves will always be the covers, we’re not biased, promise. Here’s our pick of the best of her first solo show, Doll House.
