I’m currently working on a couple of projects which include some concept art for a new steampunk webcomic set in an alternate late 1840’s and costume design for a comic opera set in 1910s Colonial Nigeria. In doing so have found some amazing fashion and design reference sites:

European Historical

Costume Institute Fashion Plates


Tudor_chic’s photostream

The Dreamstress

Diary of a Mantua Maker – one of my favourite blogs in general

Colonial Nigerian

The Art and Architecture of Yorubaland

Igbo Architecture

Ukpuru – Images of Igbo before (another generally cool blog with some brilliant images)


V&A collection


Black Dot co-operative – some absolutely fabulous fabrics, modern twists on vintage fabric with a Gorey-esque feel
