Throwback Thursday! Rebecca Prinn Oct 11 2018

Meet the artists
Where does the time go?! Throwback Thursday is back once again and this week, we're getting to know the talented Rebecca Prinn, whose been with Advocate-Art since 2016. Rebecca's bold patterns, vibrant colour palette, simplistic shapes and painterly watercolour effect have made her a very popular artist over the years for greetings cards, gift wrap, stationery, ceramics and many other licensing products! Her broad style has been suitable for all birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentines and much more! 

We asked Rebecca to go back in time and remember her first experiences when she joined our agency. Have a read through our Q&A with her and scroll through the above images. If you'd like to see more of Rebecca's work, you can do so via her online portfolio. Advocate-Art represents a number of great available artists and artwork, so if you're on the hunt for your next illustrator, take a look at our artists and reach out to an agent!

1). First Image you sent to Advocate, and was there a story behind it. 
The first image I sent to Advocate was an geometric design.  I was still working my day job as a greeting card designer at this point, so evenings were all go!

2). First Agent to sell one of your designs, what design was it and who was it to. 
The first agent to sell my designs was Natasha.  The client Henderson's licensed six designs at once, I was thrilled!

3). First live commission from a client, who was the client and what was the project.
My first live commission was from WHSmith.  They needed two Christmas gift wrap designs with a really quick turnaround.  As I’d just started out freelancing, I worked solidly all weekend on them.  Luckily they were really pleased with them.

4). First time you knew you wanted to be an Illustrator - an image, a person, an exhibition etc.. 
The first time I remember wanting to be a designer was studying my 80’s geometric cat wallpaper my mum had chosen for my bedroom and thinking it would be a cool job to do that for a living.

5). First Sample you recieved with your designs on - do you have a picture of it and tell us about the project. 
The first sample I received was a cupcake design for Noel Tatt, I’d had so much fun with this illustration, and it was the beginning of a new looser style for me.

6). First time you were proud of a piece of artwork, what was it and why.
The first time I was really proud was when Noel Tatt commissioned me for a range of cards using my mark making experiments.

7). Back to the Present - what are you working on now? 
I’m absolutely loving florals at the moment, loose usually with watercolour.
