Announcement    COVID-19; please note both Royal Mail and USPS are experiencing major delays to the US. I've had feedback that some US parcels are taking 3-4 weeks. The delivery times Etsy displays are no longer accurate. I have now made Royal Mail Tracked the only option for international orders while lockdown is in place. I've also changed my processing times to 3-5 working days so I'm not going to the postbox as often. For UK customers, orders are still shipping as normal, just with slight delays. Thanks in advance for your patience; it's just me running this shop and I'm trying my best given the current situation. Thanks so much for your orders, they mean so much right now. 💖💖💖

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.
