About InkBandit

Sales 1,043
On Etsy since 2011

Creating fun and quirky products for the bold and mischievous!

Ink Bandit was started in the run up to Christmas in 2011, I wanted to sell on a market stall but they had all been snapped up by then and so I thought 'Hey, why not start a business instead?' - and *boom* that was that!

I began with hand illustrated ceramics and creating quirky little characters like my Monsieur Llama plate, and soon enough I was setting my eyes on greetings cards, posters and the like! I created Ink Bandit as a side project to my work within a college but have since left and spend much of my time focusing on making little wonders.

I design my work with the idea of creating fun products that have a sense of adventure as well as a bit of cheek thrown in as well. There's an element of mischief in myself that just needs to find its way out! I work in a little studio space, drawing, painting and digitally editing by day and night. Some of my products are handmade by myself, but for the stationery, tote bags and cushions, I have these made to the highest quality by two lovely UK manufacturers run by small friendly teams.

Hola amigos and welcome to my shop! Ink Bandit is my small design studio where, by nightly hours and morning musings I draw, doodle and create my little ink creatures and porcelain designs to add a little fun to the day.

I hope you enjoy them!
