The Cheetah


Here is the illustration for this week a proud and beautiful Cheetah! Cheetahs are animals of extreme beauty and of course speed – they are the fastest animals on land, so I have read recently – but unfortunately also an endangered species. If you like big cats please contribute here:
Cheetahs are dynamic, wild, beautiful and fast – so here she is – an illustrated version of one! Font used courtesy of Retro Fonts from Laurence King Publishing.

A great way to start this month and the last of winter too, the month that prepares us to welcome spring and wishing you all a Happy February!!!!!!! Elli Chortara © 2015

What Time Is Cake Time?


I have been keeping very busy with things lately but I never forget important Birthdays! So I have someone’s birthday coming up very very soon and have decided to create some birthday fun in this illustration, inspired by animals – birds in this one specifically, yummy cakes and …spring – what else after this long, long winter? This one is also soon to become a Birthday card and to be printed digitally in some fine paper and will be found at my online shop that is currently under construction. Here is to Spring then and to a Happy Birthday and a great Easter/Bank Holiday weekend too. All work is copyright of Elli Chortara © 2013 All rights reserved.

Roof Gathering!


this is a new illustration I have finished called Roof Gathering including vector animals, fun and colours, which makes it relevant to arrival of Spring and spring moods – although where I live at the moment still the weather is cold, cold and am looking forward to the Spring or summer days arriving here too.

The Sounds of Nature


The wonderful sounds of nature and of animals play like top quality vinyl in the early morning hours


A new illo just finished. Started on my sketchbook but as I was redesigning it digitally it took its final playful form it will also be available on a limited digital print format more details on that to come soon
