Nicola Rowlands is an artist and graphic designer living in Manchester, where she creates her charming illustrations and the products she sells in her Etsy shop. Her Taco Kitty tote bag was recently featured in Frankie Magazine. She's also a runner, which makes her super cool in my books! (There totally should be a blog about illustrators who run.) Nicola dreams of owning a white cat at some point in the future, but for now she got the best birthday cat cake ever! Don't forget to check out her blog.
