I got this as a gift a long time ago, and it totally brightened up my day. A friend on the West Coast was having a rough time at work. I'm on the East Coast so I decided to ship the Tiger Love to her. It cheered her up :-)

My Instant Comfort Pocket Box is even cuter than it looks in the picture. It's the first Christmas present I bought this season and I can't wait to give it! Thank you also for the beautiful postcard Kim.

How I became an illustrator & shop owner
Back in the days I studied, and later worked, as a fashion designer for divers companies in the Netherlands.
Although you wouldn't think so, this meant spending most of my time behind the computer making technical drawings of clothes.
At some point I started missing working with 'real material', drawing, cutting, and assembling.
That's why I decided, back in 2004, to go back to art school to study Illustration as I noticed during my work I loved making t-shirt prints the most.
In 2007 I started my own business as a freelance illustrator and since then I've been so fortunate to get many lovely assignments from magazines, social foundations and creative companies! I also teach illustration in Utrecht and online, which I greatly enjoy.
All went well until, in 2010 I went through a rough breakup with the boyfriend I had back then. I felt really low and thought: 'I need something to pick me up'.
That's when I came up with the idea of the Instant Comfort Pocket Box: a little box with a 3D illustration and a cheerful or comforting text you can put into your pocket to look at whenever you need some consolation.
I got many enthusiastic responses from friends and family, and decided it might be something others could do with as well. In february 2011 I opened my Etsy shop and listed the first comfort boxes!
Since then I've sold my items all over the world. I enjoy making different illustrative goods and hope to bring a little joy to everyone who buys any of my items.
By the way... the comfort box really helped... I now live happily together with a lovely man, our three year old son and newborn little girl in a small town just above Amsterdam.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Illustrator
I'm an illustrator, designer and illustration teacher, living and working in Ilpendam (a tiny town just above Amsterdam, the Netherlands). Apart from two dimensional work, I love making tactile (3D) illustrative objects and installations.
The company that assembles the DIY kits for me, gives mentally disabled people - who otherwise whould have a hard time finding a job (or not at all) - a chance in life, work and a feeling of beloning and fullfilment.
Peter Print - printer
Cards and prints are printed at Peter Print, a printing company in the Netherlands that only uses high quality FSC or recycled paper and no toxics. They also aim to minimize paper waste.
