Illustrations and stories

full of warmth and Magic

-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 - 

“Beautiful, whimsical, magical”
