"I Love Mel started out life as a few badges that were made and handed out to make Mel Simone Elliott feel better after her boyfriend dumped her," Elliott writes in the "About" section on her company's website. She goes on to discuss graduating from the Royal College of Art and how her little badges developed into a brand selling anything from temporary tattoos to original paintings.
In discussing her company initiative, Elliott explains how she saw a niche of young adults who were interested in reclaiming the pastimes of their youth. The major cause for concern within this niche was that while the young adults had grown up, the artistic mediums of their childhoods had not grown up with them. So Elliott took it upon herself to create paper dolls and coloring books for adults, giving them the simple creativity of cutting out and coloring in that they so desired.
Influenced by pop culture, fame, celebrity, and glossy magazine, it is no wonder that Ryan Gosling (not to mention Kate Moss) would be at the top of her subject list. If the internet buzz today is any indication, Elliott seems to definitely know her audience, Ryan is always a hit!
