RIP BAMBI (she/her) is a 30 year old internationally published feminist illustrator and jewellery maker who lives in the dreary heart of middle England. Her familial roots lie with circus travellers of the south of Ireland, where the wild things grow and roam.
RIP BAMBI’s work mainly focusses around body positivity and challenging societal norms on women and their sexuality. Fetishism and the subversion of power dynamics are regularly featured.
Her wider inspirations include tattoo culture, Japanese manga, the riot grrrl movement, mental health, pop culture, death, literature and witchcraft.
She is also a queer, neurodivergent woman from a working class background and is passionate about these in her politics.
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 my prints are sent to me via a local supplier on a to-order basis before I post them to you. I do this twice per week so please allow up to 7 business days on top of delivery/processing times for this. Thank you! 🖤
Estimated delivery times are within;
UK orders – 7-14 working days
International orders – 4-6 weeks (please note – rarely, some parcels can take up to 10 weeks if they are inspected at customs, which cannot be avoided. If you require a faster service get in touch and I can arrange this.)
Shipping costs are at a flat rate of £3.50 for the UK and £6 for everywhere else in the world. International orders are sent via Untracked Standard. There are no tracking numbers for this service. This allows me to keep costs as low as possible for you whilst still sending via a reliable carrier. If you do need tracking, please email before ordering and I can arrange this.
Tshirts will always be sent separately to prints/pins etc as I find it minimises any risk of damage to artwork.You won’t incur any extra postage costs for this but please keep in mind they may arrive at different times. The postal service can push through some parcels faster than it does envelopes and vice versa.
If you think your order may have gone missing in the post (and the estimates above have passed) or arrives damaged, get in touch and I’ll get that sorted out for you.
All orders are sent with standard untracked services in order for me to keep postage costs as low as possible. This is via Royal Mail and comes with a 99% successful delivery rate. Unless specifically requested, you will not receive a tracking number. If you would like to ensure a delivery is tracked, feel free to get in touch to arrange this.
Yes! I ship all over the globe. For international orders, please see delivery times in the section above. 🌍
I can pop in a mini birthday card signed from myself or you – just let me know.
Please note, tshirt orders can’t be personalised in this way as they are posted out directly from my tshirt printing shop – sorry!
Tshirts are always posted seperately to artwork and pins etc. This is because I find it the safest way to get both to you without any damage and to keep postage costs down. Don’t worry if one parcel seems to be taking longer than the other, sometimes these make different flights/postal routes. It will be following behind!
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.
The natural exception to this is if the work is a commission for someone else in which case I will have to decline your request.
Yes, absolutely! Currently my books are open for new work and collaborations for design work. Please note I am currently working on a 4 week minimum turnaround, but this can change dependent on the level of work required.
Please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
Get in touch and we can discuss, you’ll never be expected to commit when asking for a quote to see if it fits in your budget.
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). 👽
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! 📓
From time to time I do free print offers. These are limited to one per person, per order. If you add multiple of these to your basket, only one will be sent. My freebies are always limited and this keeps it fair to everyone else and slows down a sell-out.
