Tania Hassounia, an illustrator, solopreneur and founder of Drawer Full of Giants, is the first illustrator we teamed up with as part of our artist collaboration project. Tania is always brimming with ideas and likes working with other creatives. Her illustrations are inspired by yesteryear and nature – thanks to a childhood of doodling on lazy summer days of kiwiana camping, along with her father’s avid interest in days gone by.
Vintage Correspondence CollectionTania has designed three wall decal collections for StickyTiki, with the first being inspired by the detailing of everyday items from 19th century England. This collection includes a Vintage Correspondence Mini Mural with all of the items, and two smaller StickyTiny sized sets, themed around a Vintage Postcard and Vintage Timepieces. They would look great in that little spot where you might journal or write letters, a little touch to add some vintage charm.
Historic Sailing ShipsThe next range is inspired by historic coins and stamps while meandering around a maritime museum one stormy day. The Historic Sailing Ships Mini Mural wall decal would be perfect for the seafaring child wanting adventure on the high seas. There are also two smaller StickyTiny sets, European Sailing Ships and Viking Sailing Ships. They would look good adorning a child's bedroom, or perhaps on the bathroom walls to add a nautical touch.
1950s inspired Dress up Dolls
Remember the paper dress up dolls from your childhood? Tania has designed a version made from our wall decal fabric, which can be put on the wall and reused over and over again. Abby comes with four outfits; a Sailor outfit, traditional Maori costume, Bedtime outfit and Party Dress. Abby is attired in a pretty underwear set, and is based on a typical eight year old girl. The doll come in different configurations; doll and all outfits, doll with one outfit as well as extra outfits, so you can start with the set, or add to it as you go.
Tania keeps busy doing freelance illustration jobs and working on her own projects, the latest being a children's Scripture Colouring book. Get in touch with Tania if you would like one, her contact details can be found on her website.
