Allison Cole is an illustrator based in Providence, Rhode Island in the US. I love her illustrations, use of colour and patterns, you can see more of her wonderful work on her website. She has a fantastic online store online store called Bang Bang You're Thread where you can buy lots of her art and illustrated goodies. Allison's gorgeous cats are called Mister T and Cleo, Mister T is the tuxedo cat and Cleo is the tortoiseshell. They love to help as well as cause trouble while Allison works, evident in the pictures above! They especially like to cause trouble when she has an illustration deadline.
