Chubby Animal Hysteria

It began as an innocent thrill for cutting bird shapes out of pretty paper and grew into a mad obsession for creating elaborate scenes of the imagined lives of said birds. Pretty soon, no animals (shapes of them, that is) were spared from being cut out and pasted onto upcycled cardboard and cardstock--

--and from that, was borne Yellowcake Crafts. However, the madness continued to spread, and soon, I was painting animals as well, giving birth to Tea Party Animals. These particular animals had a bit of a twist to them--they were blunt, and had a dry sense of humor. They provide a different point of view from my more wholesome paper art animals.

My mini empire now consists of cards, art blocks, magnets, prints, and sticky notepads. Coming soon: stickers!

  • Reese Lee

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    Hi! I'm Reese, and I love chubby animals. I also love making things, so it seemed like a natural progression to create art of chubby animals. I have been designing, illustrating, and making chubby animal art in Portland, Oregon, since 2008.

  • Bacon


    This is Bacon, one of the few true loves of my life. She has provided many an inspiration to my pieces. She was my first cat, and we had eight happy years together before she got cancer and we had to part ways. She continues to live through my art.

  • Cheese & Egg


    These are my shop assistants, Cheese and Egg. They didn't get the best employee reviews last year, but I'm seeing a lot of improvement in the teamwork area. They also moonlight part-time as break time entertainment.
