✿ Meet the Artist ✿
Hello! I'm Sandra, a freelance illustrator and designer from Sydney, Australia. When I'm not helping people with their websites, online presence or brand, you can often find me watching anime movies, gaming, with my cat, falling further down the K-pop hole OR spending time at Pepper Point, which is what inspired this shop!

Since I was a kid, I've always loved drawing, cute stuff, small things, and it's been my dream for a long time to be able to share this side of me with similar minds. After graduating university during March 2022, I became so tired of the projects I was doing - it was more on the traditional, formal side of art and design. I could feel it was time for a much overdue change.

One inspirational shower later, I came up with an idea that combined so many of my childhood interests: kawaii/chibi art, adventure video games, writing stories and characters. I then realised that I still feel so connected to these today.

This led to 'Sando + Friends' - a project fueled by nostalgia and the things I gravitated towards as a child. I haven't felt so consistently motivated to create in years. Somewhere along the way, I must've gotten caught up in trying to be 'an adult'.

Got recommendations for anime, movies, games, cats(?), Asian pop or more? Do let me in on your knowledge with a DM through Instagram @sando.and.friends. :)

🦅 📦 Standard Parcel (Tracked) - The default for bulky items and highly recommended, especially for larger orders. Items will be sent in a hand-decorated box for high protection.

🎁 Gift Wrapping, Messages + Personalisation

While I don’t offer special gift wrapping, all orders come neatly wrapped in tissue paper.

If you’re sending straight to your friend’s address as a present, I can leave a handwritten message for them, on my usual thank you card or inside the box lid (only tracked orders come in a box). To do this, add a note when placing your order with your message.

I also like to decorate shipping envelopes and boxes with a drawing or two. I can theme these drawings around birthdays, inside jokes, memes, etc. Just let me know your idea in your order notes!

🌸 Custom Orders + Commissions

Thank you for your interest! Please send me an email if you’d like to request a custom order, designs or commission. Whatever your ideas, let me know and I’ll see if we can help!
