La Boca are a London based studio, specialising in art & design for the film, music and fashion industries. Their portfolio is a bold blend of psychedelic colour, geometric shapes with a healthy dose of surrealism, as seen here, in the award winning sleeve art for Muse.
A snapshot of the past in Bec Winnel's dreamy fashion flashback.
The illustration is currently gracing the front cover of Mecca, a Melbourne based fashion magazine created by Madeline Boyd as part of her dissertation. Bec’s job was to take a trip down memory lane to create this front cover for the nostalgia issue, also within the pages is an interesting profile on the artist herself.
