About the Artist

Allison Bamcat is a contemporary illustrator living in Los Angeles, CA. Through her use of lumpy props and characters suspended in a candy-coated landscape, speckled with botanicals, Bamcat's works transport the viewer to a friendly, nostalgic, yet unsettling terre noire. The fine craft of her acryla gouache paintings collide with her background in commercial print and pattern design, resulting in her creation of a wide array of bouncing conversational and floral prints for companies including Converse, Chiefton Supply, Jade Clark UK, and Bern Unlimited. She recently relocated to sunny LA from Boston, where she enjoys exploring, eating at ramen bars, and daydreaming in her home studio.

My creative process is a none-or-all approach. I sometimes turn over a concept in my head for weeks or months, re-composing it and editing out elements for more meaningful ones until I finally sketch it out. Other times, I just sit and sketch for hours until I create something I like.

So many types of things influence my drawings and paintings, from funky ceramic glazes to beer labels fiber art to tattoo art to fashion. Some of my favorite makers currently are Ann Tilley, a quirky fiber artist in NC, Omnipollo, a Scandinavian brewery with killer packaging design, and Kaley Flowers, an eclectic sculptor from Toronto. Their color palettes and textures have made a big impact on my current work.
