Witchcrafty Illustration is the not-so-secret identity of Holly Stroud, a freelance illustrator from Dorset, UK.

I’ve been blogging in one form or another for nearly 20 years, and set up this particular blog at the end of 2014, as a way of showing my illustration influences, process and progress.

At time of writing (March 2021) I’m converting this website into my main portfolio and blog, so things are rather up in the air. For more frequent and coherent updates, visit my Instagram @witchcrafty_illustration
