ABOUT

RIPLOGO

I’m a 25 year old female illustrator from the dreary heart of the Midlands – Derby, UK.

Since I was a child I have been inspired and intrigued by the macabre and melancholic and, as such, these themes are reflected in the vast majority of my artwork. I’m in love with drawing the female form and this is often the backbone to my work.

Other inspirations include Japanese culture, mental health, feminism, mythology, body horror, sex, pop culture, death, literature and witchcraft.

Please check out the Instagram art community I am involved in using the hashtag #lowbrowwolfpack.

FAQ's

I try my very best to get orders shipped out as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind I am a one woman show and unfortunately I don’t have the time get to the post office every day.

I do set post office runs on a Tuesday and Saturday at midday-ish and in between if I get chance to. All prints are ordered in from a local print store which take 2-3 days from you ordering to get to me (if I don’t have them in stock). Please keep this information in mind when placing your order as this will add a few extra days to dispatch and delivery times. Thank you! 🖤

Estimated delivery times;

UK orders – 1-2 working days
USA/Canada – 1 – 2 weeks
Europe – 1 week
Everywhere else – 2-4 weeks

Shipping costs are at a flat rate of £2 for the UK and £5 for everywhere else in the world.

If you think your order may have gone missing in the post or arrives damaged, get in touch and I’ll get that sorted out for you stat.

Yes! I ship all over the globe. For international orders, please see delivery times in the section above. 🌍

Sure! If you’re ordering artwork to be posted straight to someone else as a gift and would like me to pop a hand written note in that’s absolutely fine. Just pop me an email or DM on Instagram within an hour after you order.

I am also happy to add a to/from sticker to the clear sleeves I pack prints (A4 size or below) in and some black ribbon at no extra cost.

Yes, absolutely! Currently my books are open for new work. Please note I am currently working on a 1 month minimum turnaround, but this can change dependent on the level of work required. Please drop me an email to bambi@ripbambi.com, or use my Contact page to get in touch with your ideas.

For commission work, my fees change depending on the work required and the time involved in producing it. I do have a minimum charge of £30 on small pieces/small tattoo commissions.

Get in touch and we can discuss.

I’m more than happy for other people to share my work, and I’m grateful that people like to do so! I do ask that you please only do this with full credit to my Instagram page (@ripbambi) and that you do not edit my work in any way (eg. add text, filters or recolour my work). 👽

In a nutshell, no. I realistically have about 3 jobs – my illustration, freelance and running a small online jewellery business.

My background includes 8 years of digital marketing and I do web/graphic design across the Adobe suite. I also offer design work such as flyers, web graphics, logo design etc. on a freelance basis.

Get in touch if you’d like me to work on some of your marketing materials. 🖊️

Realistically, I can’t do anything to stop anyone from going and getting my work tattooed by another artist without my consent . Shit happens. However, I do ask if you would like to do this (and be an excellent human) that you make a small contribution payment of £20 to support an independent artist.

I will also send you a digital file of the piece via email to take to your studio of choice. The only exception to this is if the work is a commission for someone else in which case I will have to decline your request.

Get in touch with me or drop me a DM on Instagram (@ripbambi).

100% yes. If you’re at art school or university and would like to use my work in any of your modules/coursework please feel free to use images I’ve posted online.

If you require any further citations/bios/interviews drop me a message. I’m always happy to be part of this! 📓
