Hi and welcome to skeletondraw - the home of silly cards and thoughtful gifts! I’m Laura, a freelance illustrator who loves creating digital designs for greetings cards, prints and custom commissions. I stumbled into being a freelance illustrator during lockdown and haven’t looked back since! You’ll usually find me curled up somewhere, sketching away on my iPad and slurping a fizzy drink. My work is full of colour, cats and chips.

Proudly independent

The story behind the business
Meet skeletondraw

I still can’t quite believe I get to call this my job! After completing a graphic design degree in 2019, I found myself wondering what I was actually going to do as a Grown Up. I enjoyed creating artwork on my iPad, and set up an online shop selling greetings cards, without much success. Along came 2020, and suddenly my little shop boomed, when no one could get out to buy cards. I then started to realise, hang on, this can be my job (?) and it snowballed from there! I love creating products that allow people to share funny moments, inside jokes and can put a smile on a loved one’s face. I particularly get so much joy creating portrait gifts of people and their pets! There can be challenges freelancing and running your business alone (very lonely Christmas do’s) but turning a hobby into a job is a dream come true. Thank you for supporting a small biz!
