We have been working on an exciting new collaboration with Rachel Ortas! Our new little soft Mitsou dolls will be coming very soon!
Rachel is an illustrator, graphic artist and artist in residence at Central St Martins, in addition to contributing to many art publications.
Her screen printed illustrations include weird and wonderful characters who look cute but have a slightly menacing edge, which is what makes them appealing to adults as well as children. One of her most well-known characters is the AiAis, monsters from outer space, which have been exhibited in Magma Gallery and the Science museum.
These characters appear in comic strips, books, cards and soft toys, badges... Rachel is also one of the creators and founders of OKIDO an educational and fun art and science magazine for children.
