About / FAQ

That's me! Hello! At my (former) home studio in Toronto, Canada.

Hello! studio vcky is based in Vancouver, Canada. Contrary to popular belief, we are not three raccoons in a trench coat - we are one human woman doing all the art and packing all the orders. The raccoons help, but like.. rarely.

We started this business a few years ago with one card: this card.

Since then we've amassed a small contingent of cards with increasingly silly humor, and a customer base of the kindest silly people. We (the raccoons and I), are so happy you're here and we hope you like what you see. Please join our Kind Silly People club.

We are currently looking for representation and licensing opportunities!

How I got started: Doodle Art, circa always.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do commissions? 
Sorry, not at this time!

What program/tools do you use to draw?
For my digital art, I use Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos Pro Medium. I also recently got an iPad, and draw in Procreate with an Apple Pencil.
For my black and white doodle art I use the Muji black ink pens, Gelly Rolls and Sakura Micron Pens. And Sharpies!
For my repeating pattern art and colouring pages, I use the iOrnament App on iPad.

Which art school did you go to?
I did not.

Do you draw each card by hand?
Hahahhahahahhahahaha no.

What is 15Pens?
I have two very distinctly different art styles, so I put my black and white cards under a different line called 15Pens. The 15Pens line is crude and swear words and naked animals, so I thought it an apt reference.**

** referring to that grade school prank where you ask someone if they want to join the Pen 15 club, and they say sure, so you write PEN15 on their hand 'cus it looks like "penis", and is the most hilarious thing any 8 year old has ever seen.
