Illustrated goods for everyone!

Hello, I'm Sophie. I'm an illustrator from Manchester. I graduated from UCLan with a degree in illustration in 2014. It was from guidance from my tutors that I realised I could sell products with my own illustrations.

Since graduating I've been having a go at freelance illustration. I've produced work for Walker Books, Arts Council England, The Skinny, Caboodle Magazine and more. As well as here on Etsy, you'll also find me selling my wares at print and craft fairs around the UK.

All my illustrations are drawn by hand from my small studio space at home. I use quite traditional techniques such as ink or watercolour. I then find neat ways to print them onto a whole host of products! I'm quite fond of risograph and screen print to name a few. I specialise in limited edition prints, greeting cards, accessories, textiles and more. I'm always planning exciting new products to make.

With my work I try to reflect my own personality, humour and interests. I make zines and comics which are bit more experimental. But at the same time I offer gifts that would look good in any home, such as dinosaur related items, for big and little kids! I find inspiration from animals, nature, popular culture, quotes and everyday life.
