About Tess Smith-Roberts

Chilly's: What was the inspiration behind your bottles?

Tess: I really like drawing people dancing at parties! And it seemed like a fun thing to put on a bottle

C: Can you tell us a bit about your typical creative process?

T: I normally start with some thumbnail sketches on paper, then move to the iPad and use procreate to do a more final sketch. And then I add all the colour!

C: Could you tell us a little about your background and how you ended up doing what you do? Is this your dream job or was it an unexpected turn of events?

T: I’m from Norwich but studied illustration animation at Kingston University. Just graduated in July 2019, and yes this is 100% my dream job! Still pinching myself!

C: What’s been a highlight of your career so far?

T: Making a chilly’s bottle ;-)

C: What’s one piece of advice you’d give to any aspiring creatives?

T: Keep drawing and never stop!!!

"Whilst I love drawing people dancing, I can’t dance at all. I dance like an awkward dad who doesn’t know what he’s doing."
