On September the 19th, I was rolling around Birmingham City Centre searching for the fibreglass owls that make up The Big Hoot trail. One I found was number 60: Tea T-Owl by Amy Crabtree.
Amy Crabtree is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, based in Coventry. She runs Cakes with Faces – a collection of cute and colourful characters inspired by Japanese kawaii (meaning cute and adorable). She designs t-shirts, artwork and accessories made to make people smile, with the aim of being colourful and making every day more fun.
Food (especially cakes!) with faces is her favourite subject to draw. George Osborne called Amy “the most colourful person who’s ever been at Downing Street”.
