Creating a magical world

with stories and illustrations 

- Toots Design was founded by Lorna Gibson, an author and illustrator. Through her words and illustrations, she has created many loveable characters and stories. The warmth and magic that are bred within each piece make them timeless, and she’s managed to evoke powerful emotions in people across the world. Her style has often been compared to British classics such as The Wind in the Willows, Winnie the Pooh and The Tales of Peter Rabbit. This year, Lorna has animated one of her most loved stories, Mr Bear's Christmas -

Here you can buy Lorna's books, meet Mr Bear, get cosy with a story and treat yourself to illustrated prints and cards.

MR BEAR'S CHRISTMAS

 

In 2020, I couldn't shake the idea of animating my story Mr Bear's Christmas. With a limited budget, I decided to do it myself. I learnt to needlefelt to create the characters and set, and with my IPhone and Laptop, I brought this magical story to life.
