MooBeeView #9: Little Mo and Friends - plus Amazing Giveaway!

Welcome to the June MooBeeView with Little Mo and Friends.  The creative tour de force behind Little Mo is Helena Tay.  Helena has a wonderful ability to create artworks which endear themselves to both adults and children, and her range of stationery is a must have for all ages.

As well as answer MooBeeTees' Fabulous Four Questions, Helena is offering a discount and Giveaway especially for MooBeeView readers.  Just click on the 'Giveaway' tab to see how you can enter :)

So sit back and enjoy a few minutes with Little Mo and Friends...

1) As you know I always start with the difficult questions first - and this time is no different. WHO is Little Mo? Is she someone you know? Or perhaps a combination of characters? Do tell...
Little Mo is sort of like an imaginary character who loves dressing up, having magical tea parties, playing in the garden and climbing up tree houses. I think if I lived in a storybook world, I’d love to be like Little Mo.


2) You have a very diverse background in the arts - lots of experience in various print and electronic fields. Do you think Little Mo and Friends expresses your work at its zenith or are there still fields you want to explore? Please share...
I come from a graphic design background so working in web, animation and print are areas that I’m comfortable in. I think ideally I’d love to explore my ‘crafty’ side, as in getting my hands dirty with paints or sewing and woodmaking.


3) Tell us a little about your creative process. I'm interested to know if you produce 'originals' (e.g. pen and ink) of your artworks or do you create them entirely online?
All of my works are originally hand drawn with pen and ink. I later scan in my sketches and colour them digitally.  I’m mostly inspired by four season and foliage colours.


4) Have you had any thoughts of expanding your business to produce non stationery items, e.g. fabric? Can you let MooBeeView readers in on any upcoming secrets??
I have just finished working on some nature illustrations and a lot of my blog readers have requested that I turn them into fabric patterns. I may try that! 

(MooBeeView Note: I have to say that this excites me no end!!)
I'd like to thank Little Mo and Friend's Helena for taking the time to answer my questions and letting us in to her beautifully illustrated world.  If you want to learn more about Little Mo and Friends, please visit one of the following online sites:
