I'm Carla Martell, an illustrator and designer from Auckland, New Zealand. As well as drawing silly animals with hats on, collaborating on multimedia projects and making art for children's books, I also create fun things to collect, read, wear and decorate your walls with.
Most of my work starts as hand-drawn illustrations, often in pen and ink, the old-fashioned way. I'm a big fan of printmaking, writing words that go with pictures and turning my hand to making images move.
This cute colouring page could be a nice thing to colour in for Mother's Day, a birthday or just to say hello. The little bubble carried by a cheeky bird is perfect for writing a name or greeting in, and if you wanted to make it into a card, just print it onto one half of an A4 sheet and fold.
