Marceline Smith's Profile
Hello! I'm Marceline, an illustrator, blogger, designer and zinemaker working from home in Helensburgh on the west coast of Scotland. I make a range of illustrated stationery, accessories and gifts inspired by Japanese kawaii.
Trained as a printmaker, I found a new outlet for my love of colour and pattern by designing a range of characters and patterns for stationery, fabric, gift wrap and many other products. I started Asking For Trouble in 2007 and was lucky enough to quit my job for the freelance life a year later.
Starting with doodles from my sketchbook, I work them into designs and patterns in Illustrator. Then it's the difficult job of deciding what to get them printed on - printed paper goods, fabric yardage or even cut in wood. I also license my designs to appear on everything from mugs and iPhone cases to shower…
