etsy interviewToday’s interview: Abi from Grizzly Bear Greetings! Abi makes SUCH cute illustrations! I was really happy when she agreed to be interviewed.

Cute Cartoon Portraits: Tell me a bit about yourself and what you do.

Abi:  I live in the small coastal city of New London, CT, where I work primarily as a web/graphic designer. Although I do sometimes use my illustration skills for client work, I find Etsy to be a great outlet to just draw whatever I feel like drawing at the moment.

CCP: How did you get into illustrating and selling on etsy?

Abi:  I’ve always drawn and painted animals. My first business venture was selling realistic pet portraits. Most were done in acrylics or pastels. But I got into doing computer-based illustrations after a few years of making cards and nursery artwork for friends and family who were having babies. So last year, I decided to take the plunge and start selling on Etsy. It’s been a blast so far!

CCP: What’s your favorite animal?

Abi: My favorite animal is a rabbit. I have two house rabbits named Coco and Cosette who keep me company while I work. They have the run of the third floor where my office is located. They inspired my Little Bunnies series of cards and prints and are the star models on my rabbit care website, myhouserabbit.com.
