About

Here to make you smile..

Welcome to the Awkward Illustration shop.

Hello! My name is Syd and I'm designer behind Awkward illustration. I really LOVE what I do and couldn't imagine doing anything else.

Awkward Illustrations aim is to make people smile. I want you to smile when you see these original, light hearted illustrations and your friends to smile when they open that special card you sent or see a funky illustration print hanging on your wall. This is always kept in mind when designing a new product and it's become the philosophy behind Awkward.

Between being a wife and a mother to my crazy little boy. A Lot of time is spent sketching and working on the development of fun, quirky products to add to the range. Most inspiration comes from daily life including objects and people around me. I may have a strange conversation with my husband and it will trigger an idea or my son will do something funny and I have to note it in my sketch book.

All products are created the same way with the flash of inspiration and a scribble in one of many sketchbooks, I love my sketchbooks. Even if I think the sketches/drawings are really bad they are kept and often referred back to later, you never know when something 'bad' will turn into something more. Final designs are then finished and smartened up. Once happy with a design it is sent out to be professionally printed. I get very excited when picking up a new design, Its like opening a present. It gives me a warm snugly glow, which I hope I can pass onto my customers.
The current product range includes bold illustrative prints and a fresh vibrant range of greetings cards. I am excited for the future as Awkward Illustration continues to grow with funnier, quirkier products being worked on and shortly added to the shop.

If you would like to commission a specific piece of art work, have a project in mind for my style of illustration or stock awkward illustration products in your shop. Drop me an email at info(at) awkwardillustration.co.uk

Thanks for stopping by!
Syd

    Hi my name is Sydonia and I'm the person behind the designs. I studied design up until degree level and went on to have a career in CAD design for construction and retail. I had my son and realised that I enjoyed creating greetings cards more.
