I observe and listen. Then I draw and write. My work has featured in The Guardian, Grazia, The Independent, InStyle, Red, Mumsnet, Netmums, and many more places besides. I collaborate with brands who have an interest in provenance, and relating to consumers using a more personal tone of voice. With relatability. I am always collecting experiences so please contribute. Especially to my School Rumours section. Examples here:

I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Hello Laura Quick,
    I love your work! Just wanted to let you know I was having a browse on your blog and was really enjoying the illustrations and vignettes… Little slices of life are the best type of thing to put a smile on your face!
    I’ve added you a blogroll so I’ll look forward to further installments.
    I am a Brit living in Sydney and running a cycling organisation called BikeWise…
    Thanks again,

    Oh, yes! I feel right at home here with your drawings and “text.” I am smiling and enjoying everything – don’t want to be too effusive – but I could be – I really like you work and your sense of humor. I am looking forward to many amusing moments as I follow your wit, wisdom and talent!

    Brilliant! This is brilliant. Nothing beats talent and the ideas, just great. I am sure I have got a whole lot to learn from here, especially this time when I am working independently on a fashion project and someday, probably soon, I hope I get the chance to visit your studio in Hackney.
    I am really inspired with the way you keep your works all handmade and that alone has given me a sense of direction for my project.
    Thank you for being an inspiration, God bless you real good.


  21. I agree with the comments above – your posts on daily life are a TRIUMPH! I have laughed many times, beautifully done.

  24. All of your drawings are so brilliant spontaneous and un-fussy, I love them. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face, I’m gonna share your stuff all over if that’s alright! What you manage with your drawings is kind of what I’m trying to achieve in my more loose writing, so it’d be awesome if you could check it out/follow me!
