Hello, my name’s Pete and ever since I began dating my partner Kellie 5 years ago I’ve been making her illustrations based on our lives together, to capture the funny things we say and do.
For the first few years no one except Kellie saw them but last year we decided to set up an Instagram page and since then we’ve been gradually building up a small and loyal following of super lovely, kind people. We’ve been overwhelmed by how positive and warm the support is.
Now we also have a daughter, Poppy, and the illustrations have become a visual diary of everything, from us deciding to try for a baby, to the tough pregnancy, right through to her being the amazing toddler she is now 🙂
I think people follow us because our illustrations are a really honest and candid look at relationships and daily life. The situations we show are very relatable and sometimes the kind of things people don’t readily discuss. I think the followers also enjoy the combination of very sweet, tender moments interspersed with silly, crude humour.
Kellie and Poppy are a daily inspiration to me, and I love the thought of the 3 of us in years to come looking back at all the illustrations and cherishing the happy and funny memories.
