about me

Hi there! My name is Julia, and I'm the illustrator and writer behind Rather Puckish.

 I started Rather Puckish in 2016 with a handful of colored pencils, and stack of 3x5 index cards.

With each hand drawn digital illustration puckishness can tease out a grin, express a strong point of view, or feel big feelings… and always spark that extra twinkle that makes you stop and take a closer look.



We believe in spreading joy, being the most YOU you can be, and finding good mischief and magic in every day. We love books and know colorful florals are always a good idea. We’re here for the moment where fancy meets casual, and we find it hard to resist a good pillow fort.

Why puckish you ask? The dictionary definition of puckishness is being playful and mischievous. To me, it's also about being a little cheeky (thoughtfully), a little witty, extremely spirited, and spreading joy, enthusiasm and the idea of being exactly who you are without a care for what others might think.

If you love good stories, imagination, and a poking-ideas-with-sticks way of looking at life, there is plenty of puckishness here for you. If you're interested in big ideas that anyone can be themselves in tulle or in overalls and do what they want with their lives on their own terms, this is absolutely the place for you.

Welcome! We’re so happy you’re here.
