About BlueWaterLilith

On Etsy since 2008

"Gorgeous graphic tributes... re-imagined with a pared-back, mid-century aesthetic." The Guardian, December 2013

My illustration reflects a partiality to poster art, a penchant for comic books (a.k.a. graphic novels) and a fondness for miniatures - because at heart I am still very much 5 years old. If you're interested, you can find out more about me in this short video:
Please feel free to get in touch if you’d like to discuss wholesale prices.

This shop doesn't have a marketing department, but customer satisfaction is my number one priority: if you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me and I will do my best to get it straight (please bear in mind the time difference).

    Hello! I'm an illustrator born in Italy by the sea during the (arguably) finest decade of the 20th century and currently living in London.

All images in this shop can be printed in the following sizes:

6"x4" (or 10 x 15 cm), available here:

You may now select the different sizes from the dropdown menu.

Prints are printed by a professional print service on premium archival lustre paper, which is quality photographic paper that lasts a long time.

Sorry, digital downloads are not available.
Lastly, films or books suggestions are welcome, but unfortunately I cannot guarantee that I will create a poster for each of them.

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


You can pay using either your credit card and Paypal.
Please note: you do not need an account to pay with Paypal; you can just enter your card details at the checkout.
E-cheques orders will not be shipped until they clear, usually within 7 days.


NB: please ensure the address you supply is correct.

Important: Delivery dates are an estimate only; these are never guaranteed. If you need your order by a specific date, please get in touch before purchasing to see if it’s feasible. I’ll do my best to accommodate your request.

All US orders, with the exceptions of mugs, framed prints, phone cases are printed in the US at no extra cost and normally delivered within 7 to 9 days from payment, as well as being trackable.
NB Estimated date of arrival is not guaranteed, especially around the Holidays.

If you live outside the US and the UK, and need delivery by a certain date, please select the option to upgrade shipping.

Packages are sent worldwide from London, UK by standard international post unless requested otherwise. This method is the most economic, but offers no tracking.
Shipping times vary from 1 week to up to 4 weeks.
Please note that the processing and shipping times are only an approximate estimate.

While packages generally arrive MUCH sooner, I allow the post office up to 2 weeks for delivery within the UK and US & up to 6 weeks for International delivery before considering the parcel lost.

Please remember that shipping around any holiday can be very unpredictable and Priority Upgrades are recommended to ensure faster delivery times.

All items in my shop should ship within 3 working days from payment. Sometimes there may be a delay; I will let you know if that is the case.

Postal prices include packaging, handling and shipping.

If you purchase one or more postcards or greeting cards, cases or mugs together with a poster from my shop, they may be shipped in a separate parcel due to the difference in shape.

Purchasers are responsible for any duties and/or taxes levied at the point of entry into the destination country.

-UK orders: if you are not home during delivery and do not arrange to pick up your parcel from the post office, or for redelivery, and this gets returned, there will be a fee to resend the parcel again. This also applies to parcels that get lost, if sent by untracked standard delivery. I will ship again for free if you select the express (and tracked) option.
-International orders: in the rare event a parcel gets lost, I will resend it for a shipping fee.

Mine is a small business and this is the best I can offer. Thank you for your understanding.

My prints are shipped in either a tube or a flat box, most likely recycled. I do like to reuse packaging material when possible, so please forgive the fact some parcels may not be the best available to humanity.

Additional policies and FAQs

If your experience buying from me has been positive, I would be grateful if you could leave a 5 stars review. In case of any problems, please contact me by Etsy conversation or email before leaving less than 5 stars: I am happy to resolve any situation.

4x6, 6x9, 8x12, 12x18, 16x24, 20x30 and 24x36 inches frames are widely available on Ebay or Amazon.

Please be aware that the settings on your monitor might mean that the colour of your print may differ very slightly from the image you see on your screen.

The image may appear pixellated on screen due to the resolution of the online scan: however, the printed sample will be high resolution.

The watermark will NOT appear on the printed image.

All of my prints are based on illustrations made by me and not to be re-distributed, copied, imitated, or misappropriated in any way.
