Welcome to the official online home of Totem Tiger and City Animalz, concepts created and developed by Bristol based artist, designer and printmaker Jess ‘TKLS’.
Drawing and painting original artwork by hand, Jess is inspired by the detail and complexity of the natural world. Her concern for its future influences the materials and print techniques she selects to design and make unique ethical and sustainable products for her label Totem Tiger.
Her colourful "stylised animal characters with attitude", the City Animalz, come from another dimension and have a story of their very own to share. Jess is taking on the role of explorer and naturalist to study and describe the world in which they live and hopes to produce a book of unique illustrated prints detailing her findings.
Jess would like to thank everyone who has supported her and her animal family so far and hopes you are excited by what may come next.
