Caitlin B. Alexander is an illustrator based in Austin, Texas.

“Lovely Little Things” is a shop of prints and products that are nostalgic yet fresh, and charming yet mature. This parallels Caitlin’s freelance illustration career, CBA Illustration, as both her life and work are heavily influenced by the aesthetics of the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s. She focuses on a representation of repeat patterns and texture in our natural world, along with the anthropomorphism of animal characters, and messages of strength and acceptance, via hand-lettered typography. This love of smaller details— a cluttered kitchen, a cat’s fur texture, harmonious color in a sign, variations in a garden— is what the artist brings to her audience: an appreciation for the Lovely Little Things in life.

Caitlin primarily works digitally, but creates a lot of art in gouache, with a particular love for dry-brushing, as well. You can find her work at cbaillustration.com, cbaillustration.tumblr.com, and @cbaillustration .
