We strongly believe that it’s hard not to fall in love with illustrations of an animal dressed up. So yes – Karine Fortier’s work is pretty much doing the business for us! We’re loving her adorable characters and soft muted palettes, and if her animals had been available as posters (alas, they’re not!) we’d have snapped one of these up already. But who knows – if we hear that these chappies do become available as prints, we’ll let you know. Karine, originally from Paris, now works from her garden studio here in the UK fulfilling a variety of digital illustration commissions. Definitely one to watch!
