Quick fire feature with rosi.illustration

I was minding my own business, scrolling through my discover feed on Instagram and then


…this illustration by @rosi.illustration popped up.

It perfectly captures how I’d been feeling about my workload as of late. Reminding me that it’s okay to admit sometimes that you may be going a bit slower than desired, but at least you’re still going.

I immediately clicked on her profile and scrolled through her feed, I sent her a message expressing how much I loved her work.

I asked Rosi if she’d be happy answering some questions so that her awesome work can be shared, as we learn a bit more about her.

Here are 10 quick-fire questions with @rosi.illustrations

1. What's your name?

My name is Rosi Yip

2. Where are you from?

I grew up in London but I live in Bristol

3. What is your craft?

I’m an illustrator, designer and ceramicist

4. Did you study? If so what and where?

I studied Fine Art at Oxford Brookes uni

5. What inspires you to create?

I find people really inspiring. Whether that’s other artists or just in my day to day life. I enjoy sharing things which helps me to create relatable and humorous work.

6. If you had the opportunity to undergo the project of a lifetime. What would you do?

It would definitely be something to do with my clay ladies. I’d love to be in a themed exhibition with similar artists, I think it would really broaden the way I approach my work.

Do what you do because you love doing it. I make things because I authentically love and enjoy making them.

10. Where would you like to see yourself (and your artwork) in 5 years’ time?

Big thanks to Rosi for taking the time to answer our questions and letting us feature you and your work here at Surrounded! I hope that you love her work as much as I do!

Her online store will soon be restocked, so why not get someone a lovely nude lady for Christmas?

Go and check out her work on Instagram and be uplifted by her quirky little ladies.
