Hi, I'm Christine!

I am a romance-book-editor-turned-designer-and-illustrator from Cleveland, Ohio, US. 

I specialize in surface design, specifically illustrative lettering and pattern design for apparel, accessories, and home decor products.

I’m inspired by traditional American style tattooing, midcentury children’s illustration, and vintage textiles.

My surface designs are like my surfaces at home: colorful, organized chaos. Densely cluttered, but tidy. I don’t do white space; if there’s a hole, I fill it.

I create my work digitally through a combination of Procreate for iPad, Adobe Creative Suite, and yelling.

Find me on Instagram at @ChristineParkerCo where I recommend books, share my art process, thrift ugly old treasures, and swear a lot.

Fun fact: I am a knitter and crocheter and have dabbled in pattern design. You can find my patterns on Ravelry here.
