I'm Rachael McLean, a freelance children's illustrator living in a lovely coastal town in Australia. My illustrations can be found worldwide in beautiful kid's books and on pretty products, wall art, greeting cards, editorials and websites. My work has been featured on popular design blogs such as Print and Pattern, Inside Out and Apartment Therapy, and in printed publications such as Uppercase, Babiekins and Frankie Magazine.
My drawings spring to life from my trusty Wacom tablet, using a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. Inspired by bright colours and all things whimsical, my characters and designs are fresh, modern and fun. I draw with clean shapes, bold colours and subtle textures, creating playful designs to make people smile.
I am proudly represented by The Bright Agency. If you'd like to discuss an illustration project, or if you are interested in licensing my designs for your products, contact me for a chat.
