Pipsticks + Catalina Williams Collab

Everyone at the Pips studio instantly became HUGE fans of Catalina Williams after she submitted artwork to us via our artwork submission form.

Her work is the perfect blend of fresh and nostalgic, her color palettes are unexpected and rich, her illustration is graphic and gestural all at the same time – she’s the complete package. After scrolling her Insta feed I felt like I needed ALLLL of her illustrations in sticker form!

After including two of her designs in past Sticker Club packs, I reached out to see if she would be up for another collaboration. She graciously accepted and promptly delivered a suite of illustrations that perfectly fit the upcoming April Pro Sticker Club theme of self care.

For our April sticker pack, we printed her illustrations on pretty, matte paper and added little pops of neon to make the colors sing. We love the ladies she drew, and know you’ll have a million uses for the cameras, eye masks, and other gorgeous illustrations she created!

I’m a graphic artist and illustrator.

I really wanted to be John Lennon.

How long have you been in the creative industry?
I went to school for architecture about 10 years ago, then I started painting, and for the last 3 years, I’m dedicated to illustration and graphic design. I love the transition, and I enjoy seeing my artwork in products you can use.
