From Town & Country

When she isn’t designing townhouses in Chelsea and terraces in Primrose Hill with Ben Pentreath, the architect and illustrator Meg Hudson creates delightfully detailed hand-drawn cards and prints from her London home.

Influenced by the colourful works of artists such as Barbara Jones and Osbert Lancaster, Hudson describes her illustrative style as “a little bit childlike and cartoonish”.

“It’s a really nice foil to architecture, where lines have to be straight and formal,” she explains, adding that she uses the same fine-nib pen for both pursuits.

This season, Hudson has created a jolly collection of cards based on the 12 days of Christmas, featuring quirky characters such as a French hen wearing a Breton top and a swan sporting a wintry scarf.
