About Teeth and Claws


Dragons, cats, gothic bats, dinosaurs, bears, bees and other illustrated beasties on Art Prints, Greeting Cards, Coasters and English Fine Bone China Mugs. Welcome to my shop, Teeth and Claws by Nicola L Robinson.

Teeth and Claws is a small creative business run and managed by me- Nicola L Robinson. I'm an artist and illustrator based in Nottingham UK, and I've been a professional illustrator for many years now, see my illustration website - www.nlrobinson.co.uk  My priority with Teeth and Claws is creating the highest quality products with my unique illustrated designs for folks who like things a little bit different and quirky, monstrous even...

I started Teeth and Claws as an outlet for my illustrated creatures, particularly my dragons who were keen to get out into the world. The dragons were my first range, followed by dinosaurs, my ever expanding range of illustrated cats and Gothic bats.

I've always loved drawing since being a small child, my favourite things to draw then and now have been things like dragons, crocodiles, monsters and other animals, things with teeth and claws, which inspired the name!

I particularly love working in pen and ink and coloured inks and watercolours to create my illustrations, and sometimes digital paint too. I always aim to create work with great character and personality, and take great care of all aspects of my Teeth and Claws range, from the very beginning designing and illustrating my products, through to manufacturing and quality control and finally meticulously packing and posting all my creations to their new homes. These are busy times here at Teeth and Claws HQ, but I couldn't be happier.

I work with a very select group of British manufacturers to produce my products in small quantities here in the UK.

I'm very excited to have my artwork move from paper onto Fine Bone China recently with my beautiful new collection of Dragon and Bat mugs. Do take a peek at them in my shop!

Thank you very much for visiting my little shop of illustrated beasties!

Monstrous Wishes,

Nicola L Robinson
