Victoria Whincup is an illustrator currently based in Hull. She graduated from Cambridge School of Art with a first class honors degree in Illustration. I just discovered her soft sculptures made from calico, hand painted and stuffed with organic cotton. Each creature from the series has an interesting hobby. For example - Bobby who is a pretty little barn owl, likes to she likes to do cross stitching in her spare time.
Also, you must stop by her online store to view her beautiful prints.
