An Interview With Illustrator Lucy Turnbull - GOLDLUST LDN


June 09, 2017

We recently caught up with Lucy Turnbull, a contemporary Illustrator focusing on fashion and lifestyle. When we found Lucy via Instagram we instantly fell in love with her bold and vibrant illustrations. We got the chance to learn about where her inspiration comes from and a little bit about her when she's not working...

How did you get started as an illustrator and what was your inspiration?

I've always wanted to be an artist but chose illustration as it's such a broad subject and gave me the freedom to experiment with different elements. My inspiration probably came from other illustrators, seeing how they used their art for all sorts of things.

How would you describe your work?

I would say it's very bright, bold, a bit random and detailed! 

What motivates you on a daily basis?

Enjoying what I'm doing. If I have a piece of work I'm not looking forward to I put it off. Being excited about creating something is the biggest motivation. 

If you could choose anything to wear as a Brooch, what would it be?

Probably a gold cactus or an avocado!

What projects/collaborations are you working on now?

At the moment I'm working on a few personal projects, making zines and various prints to hopefully start selling very soon. I'm also working with a new clothing brand but it's all top secret.

Where would we find you if you’re not working?

Spending time with my friends, at the beach, at a bar, walking my dog or on holiday.

What do you look for when purchasing jewellery?

It has to be gold! I also love tiny semi precious stones or a hammered texture.

Whats your favourite illustration and why?

My favourite changes all the time. I'm quite fond of a series of neon designs I did as I went out of my comfort zone and experimented with light and different colour tones.

Who should we be following on Instagram?

My absolute favourite people on Instagram has to be @confetticrowd, @emilycoxhead (the creator of the happy news paper), @thegypsyshrine and @pieandfash (Daisy Keens).

Describe yourself in three words.

I would say driven, hardworking and outgoing.
