In the world of fashion, hard work always pays off and for former FLARE art intern Rachael Meckling, it paid off in print. In our new June issue, Meckling adds a splash of pastel graphics alongside top model Amanda Laine who dons print on print on print (you get the picture). Known as our resident artiste, Meckling was one of FLARE‘s “Bright Young Things” in our August 2010 issue and now, the Saskatoon-born doodler is putting her art front and centre.

“I have always loved to draw. I find it the perfect medium to express myself. A lot of the time even in mid conversation I have to illustrate things because there just aren’t words for everything,” says the self-taught artist who studied fashion communications at Ryerson University. With a growing portfolio of work, Meckling is now sharing her coveted collection on Tumblr—the perfect platform for her coveted doodles.
