OLIVIA YORK / MELBOURNE
I grew up on a farm in country Victoria, before moving to Melbourne. So when it came to deciding on a subject matter, it made sense to marry my favourite native animals with city culture. Who wouldn’t want to sit with a wombat on your morning commute, rather than a banker with hay fever? Or wait in line at a café behind a Koala, rather than six hipsters with orders more complicated than the plot of the novel they’re working on?
Hand illustrated and printed here in Melbourne, my illustrations are as Australian as a Koala snacking on a jar of Vegemite, which incidentally features in one of my prints!
