Poppy Loughtman is a designer and illustrator based in Manchester, UK. 
Poppy's work is playful and often experiments using pencils, oil pastel, ink and gouache as well as paper-cut shapes before editing digitally. Interesting colour palettes, intriguing characters, and her hand lettering, coalesce to produce a variety of outcomes from editorial pieces to book cover designs.
Bringing another dimension into Poppy's illustrations, she handcrafts small, explorative ceramic pieces. These are made with almington and ivory stoneware clay, and decorated using a variety of glazes and underglazes which challenge the boundaries of her illustration.
