About

A joke that got out of hand.

I have drawn since I was dexterous enough to pick up a pencil crayon and I am obsessed by colour, fine detail and natural history. After graduating from Goldsmiths University with a degree in Literature & Creative Writing I decided to forge my own career path. Namely, in drawing animals in human clothing.

I started drawing with pencil crayons and fine liners and began to develop my technique, layering up the colours like you normally would with watercolours - laborious but very fun! I try to grant the birds as much anatomical accuracy as possible whilst still being fun, anthropomorphic characters that give people a giggle. All the birds in hats illustrations are still originally hand drawn like this - with lots of very sharp pencils and attention to detail.

It's been a few years and I'm now a full time illustrator, taking on personal and commercial illustrations, running a small business & stocking shops up and down the country and around the world, all from my messy little studio in London.

I have a soft spot for stationery and paper products & I am always looking forward to the next project. I'm always open to new ideas and to finding somewhere else to spread my characters far and wide.

If you'd like to commission a personal or commercial project, stock my birds in your shop, have any questions or just want to say hi - please get in touch via Etsy or email me at hello [!at] alicetams.com

If you'd like to see behind the scenes and have a look at my works in progress then find me on twitter or instagram - I'm @alicetams on both.
