Learn adorably cute and simple art

About Carlianne

My name is Carlianne Tipsey and I am an Author/Illustrator with a love of children's media and all things cute.
I'm ridiculously proud that the book I wrote and illustrated, "How to Draw Adorable," which won the BIBA, IPPY and Next Generation Indie Publishing Awards. Plus I was fortunate enough to be honored with "Best Portfolio" at the SF SCBWI Illustrator's Day conference in 2021.
Before children's media I worked in game illustration and with some small film studios.  
Some of the clients I've had the pleasure of working with include:
  • Disney Interactive
  • Imangi Studios
  • Filmkik
  • FLX films
  • MIT
  • KiwiCo
  • and more!

I am proudly represented by

Here's a bit more to know about me:
I grew up in a rural part of Sacramento, California where we had goats and chickens as pets.  I have wanted to be an artist since I was 9 years old watching Disney movies and playing with my coloring books. 
My dream job was to color all day long, I even wrote a letter to Disney asking if there was a job for that (the answer was no, but they were really sweet and told me what else I could do).  Which totally paid off when I landed my first job out of college with Disney Interactive.  I literally had to draw Disney princesses and create concept art for some of my favorite IPs.

After Disney I decided I really wanted to dive into children's media.  I have two beautiful toddlers that keep me very busy and very inspired to create  I was fortunate to help write and illustrate books and educational content with Kiwico, and am now trekking down my own path as a freelance illustrator and creator.
