Sugar Power!

Illustration / photo montages by Sugar Power

Last week I got an email from someone called Sugar Power.

Yes, that's right, Sugar Power.

In addition to having the most amazing name in the world, Ms Power is also an award-winning illustrator, a dual citizen of Switzerland and Canada, and has recently relocated to Melbourne.

Sugar has illustrated for many ad agencies, publishers, magazines and film companies etc overseas. She actually has a master's degree in animation, and a bachelor degree in art history. She is currently really interested in moving into styling. She says - "I wanted to find a way to combine all my loves and recently unearthed the art of styling. It is like it was in front of me the whole time. Like some kind of fairy-tale."

Sugar's work is certainly super-saccharine and fairy-tale-esque! I especially like her recent crazy kitschy illustrated arrangements (some above and more here.) She also has older work online here.

You can make these images by playing this cute little photo-pairing game on Sugar's website here

Sugar is really keen to get to know the Melbourne creative community, and in particular, she would love to meet food / prop stylists. If you fancy making friends with someone called Sugar Power you should totally send her an email. :) She would love to hear from you!


  1. i'm not in the styling game - only at my work place - but i think everyone could have a friend called sugar power in their lives....
