The world of Elly Oldman in 5 questions!

Who are you? What is your background?

My name is Elly, I am 30 years old and I have been living in Rennes for more than 10 years. I have worked in many fields in recent years, especially in events and as a barmaid, all this without ever stopping to create and tinker with a lot of little things. A little over three years ago and following an epileptic seizure that turned everything upside down in my life, I started scribbling and embarked on a drawing that will never stop, the Endless Drawing (on Instagram: @theinfinitedrawing). What an adventure! After two years, I drew a fresco of more than 5 meters filled with thousands of characters that I exhibit everywhere in France. She talks about the planet, waste, plastic and with her, thanks to drawing and augmented reality, I travel the France to talk about ecology with adults and children. In the end, maybe it was the epileptic seizure I needed to change my life. I don't regret anything, even if it wasn't easy every day and it still isn't. As a self-taught, I like to explore a lot of things, and since I draw a lot, I created this Etsy shop to be able to share all my crazy adventures with you every time a new idea comes to mind, and then also to show you that everything is possible in life, that everything can change overnight and that we can recover. I think that as soon as you know what you want, things go naturally and flow together. So, find what you like and above all, dare to do it!

What is your brand? Why did you choose this name? What do you create? What is the history of your products?


My brand? Well, since my shop is named after me, I would say that my brand reflects my universe, my way of drawing and the things that inspire me. I like what has character, I like colors so I guess everything that is alive and motivating pleases me! In my shop, you can find several facets of my personality. Pop collections with flashy colors, wacky and characterful characters but also moments of sweetness, more cocooning. I need to rest in a cloud regularly to recharge my batteries!
I create my products as ideas come to me. I love stationery so creating magnets, stickers and cards based on my illustrations has become a no-brainer!
What I really like outside of drawing is this moment when I choose how each of my illustrations will be adapted on support. Which one will make a beautiful magnet, which one will be prettier on a map? I like to imagine how my creations will be able to come to life with their future buyers!

What technique(s) do you use? Your favorite material?

I draw a lot on Ipad and I love working with the different printing techniques on my work but you can regularly see illustrations made with other more traditional techniques, such as watercolor, engraving, acrylic ...


What is your universe? Where do you find inspiration?

Well, I open my eyes, all the time, I take pictures of what I like, I write down what inspires me, I collect bits of stuff and I have a list as long as three arms of stuff to do with it! I'm like a little mouse piling up seeds for the winter, except that these are the ideas and materials I accumulate in my workshop! I like a lot of things that are very different from each other, which allows me to expand my universe constantly.
However, my illustrations remain recognizable even when they deal with completely different subjects. It seems that we have a "paw" after a while. I think that's true.
If I had to find words to define what I do, I would say: color, humor, character, frankness, sweetness and above all happiness!

A quote to share with us?

It is not because he has marked there that we must not that we can not do it anyway. Self-citation.

    Self-taught illustrator, I started to look at drawing at the end of 2016 following an epilespie crisis. In 2017, I started Drawing Endless on Instagram (@theinfinitedrawing) and I draw every day with love ever since!
