Design Inspiration

Cheerful Monster by Tania Smith is an orange spotted creature with blue eyes. Orange is the colour of Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic condition affecting one in 15,000 births, including the artist’s son. People with Prader-Willi syndrome have many challenges yet are known for their cheerful and loving nature. Tania refers to her son affectionately as her ‘little monster’ hence the title of this UooUoo.
