About Me

HI THERE!

 

I’m a Toy Designer and Illustrator with an affinity for pandas and farts hence all the tooting pandas in my artwork…  I got my BFA from Otis College of Art and Design specializing in Toy Design which lead me to designing toys professionally. I've worked at big toy companies like Spinmaster and MGA Entertainment and helped design lots of fun brands like Chubby Puppies, Zoobles and my personal favorite, Kawaii Crush! I'm now self employed as a freelance Toy Designer and Character Designer which allows me to collaborate with other leading companies like Nickelodeon, Hasbro, Ubisoft and so many more!

 

Aside from my day job, which is pretty awesome, I make up my own little world of characters and merchandise them through my small business, Linda Panda, selling art prints, apparel, accessories and books. Feel free to check out my Etsy shop!

 

You'll usually find me at home in Torrance, CA with my dear husband, Nate Mitchell, owner/creator of Squid Kids Ink (go check it out at www.SquidKidsInk.com), my two amazing sons Clark and Oliver, and CB our adorable kitty cat.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Linda Panda
