Ria, aka Uberpup, works as a commercial illustrator & designer in London. Her commercial work spreads across animation, textiles, stationery, and product designs for clients such as British Airways, WHSmith, the BBC and Intercom. What links her diverse work together is the vibrant use of day glo colour, collaged patterns & texture underpinned by digital experimentation. She uses humour with playful characters to create surreal imagery and narratives – often inspired by things that make her laugh. Influences include Peter Cook, Gravity Falls, Blackadder & anything Muppet related. She wants to develop her work further to pursue her passion: creating illustrated stories for children.
