Hey Kids... It's time for milk and cookies!

I love milk and cookies, especially the chocolate chip kind delicately dipped in frosty white milk just long enough to soak up the calciumy goodness, but not so long that your cookie breaks in half and you have to scoop it out with a spoon. I also love illustration. Today, we get to enjoy both!

Milk and Cookies is a new range of artwork for kids {and grownups too of course!} designed by Melbourne based illustrator Tali Gal-on. Tali launched her Etsy store in June this year after spending several years working in kids web design and illustration for cool clients such as ABC Kids and Sesame Street.

I simply adore “Dip“, the print below featuring Monsieur Biscuit who loves having a relaxing dip in his Earl Grey tea tub {although, make mine coffee please… I dream of starting work that way everyday!} Read on for “the quick three”… Tali, in her own words.

Stories, real or imagined, have always inspired me. Whether they’re stories I hear from my friends, or stories I invent from the things I see around me. People are interesting creatures. I also love contemporary illustration, comic art, and animation.

It all starts with pencil and paper, I always sketch first, whether in my sketchbook, or on a million little post it notes which end up bulging out of my diary, or stuck all over my desk.

From there, I usually create the final piece digitally using a wacom tablet. Drawing digitally gives me an incredible amount of freedom, and I can’t live without my little friend the undo button.

Nowadays, when I draw in traditional media – pencils or paints – if I make a mistake or decide to try a different colour, I find myself instinctively reaching for the undo button! Too bad it doesn’t exist in real life! I do love the line quality and happy accidents that drawing in traditional media offers. Let’s face it, everyone started drawing with a pencil first, and holding a pencil will always feel the most natural.

I draw, read books, watch films (I have a special spot in my heart for soviet era Russian animation- especially “hedgehog in the fog”), fill my head with new stories, I play guitar, watch bands, burn cakes, kill cactuses, try and think of stories for animated films… I also animate, and have been lucky to travel around to a few film festivals with my animated films.

You can purchase Tali’s artwork online at the Milk and Cookies Etsy Store, or visit her website to view some more of her glorious illustrations.

Thanks for reading folks, I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunny Sunday afternoon! See you tomorrow for Oddball Alphabet!


Share the love!
