Surfing Sloth

Screen Shot 2016-09-03 at 11.37.33 AM

Surfing Sloth is a little brand by Lithuanian illustrator Luka Va. Based in Melbourne, her illustrations are original, quirky and naive, turned into greetings cards, prints and accessories. As it’s Luka’s first time at Handmade next week – 10 & 11 September (10am-4pm), we asked her our three questions:

1. What is your business all about?
I just like drawing animals! I think it is about doing what I like most, creating things I like and sharing it with other people. I hope my customers and follower enjoy my works as much as I like drawing them.
2. What made you apply to Handmade?
Once a friend from Canberra mentioned the market, I did a little research and thought – it looks very nice, why not?
3. Sum up your business in THREE words.
I can’t decide!
Not too serious.
Cats and sloths.
Colourful funky cats.
Thanks so much for your time Luka – see you at the market!
