The imperfect, odd, funny, unusual characters, illustrations, hand drawn, handcrafted things that will inspire and give you a smile.


Welcome to Whimsy Art! My name is Ellen Berces and I’m the illustrator and designer of the images on this site, a place where I share my drawing techniques and crafts. I love creating funny animal characters and a lot of cute things. I put most of my designs on t-shirts, cards, posters, bags, accessories and other items. It’s great to know that somehow, someone will appreciate these creations and make it a part of their lives.
