Dino Raw began several years ago, when I was a stay at home mum to my two precious boys Jack & Ted.
With a strong background in fashion design & visual merchandising I began to lend my creativity towards illustrating for my boys.
When my boys were around the ages two and four years they developed a strong obsession for dinosaurs, anything to do with dinosaurs they loved!
"Draw dinosaur, Mum" was constantly repeated by my youngest son Ted, & Jack had thoughts of me drawing the dinosaurs and he could colour them in.
So I began illustrating my first dinosaur...and yes it was a Tyrannosaurus Rex!
My boys loved him & I loved the idea of transforming these wonderful creatures into a fun & colourful design that would appeal to younger children as often dinosaurs can be quite scary for our little ones. As time went on I found myself illustrating more and more dinosaurs at the request of my boys and other mums with little dino obsessed boys!
All of my illustrations are created by me. I use various mediums, including fine ink, crayon and marker. These friendly creations are then reproduced into a high quality print, I print on white linen paper & parchment paper, both have a beautiful natural texture that brings out the detail and colour of the illustration.
Dino Raw is about facilitating our young one's love of dinosaurs without being too scary and is synonymous with friendly smiles & fun-filled colours. Dino Raw prints will brighten your little one's room & rest assured your little dino lover will sleep safe & sound as our friendly dinosaur watches over...Rawww!!
Love Sarah, Jack & Ted xx
