About littleclyde illustration
Hi, my name is Michelle! It took me a little while to figure this illustration thing out. I've always drawn and doodled, but it wasn't until 2006 that I started thinking about actually developing my skills in a tangible way. A long detour into t-shirt designing led me to where I am today, happily creating monsters and animals who inhabit strange and beautiful habitats.
These are the things inside my head.
My work is a study of introspection, nostalgia, joy and imagination. I like to combine analog techniques with digital drawing to create a unique style. I'm often inspired by the many different landscapes that have helped illustrate my life: from my early childhood in suburban New York to my formative island years in Hawaii, and the many stops from there to my current home in the ever changing city of Berlin, Germany.
