I have always had a sketchbook in my bag. A sketchbook that I fill with watercolour characters, objects, faces, and plants. Everything that inspires me. Over time, I noticed one recurring character in my sketchbooks. A little faceless yellow cat that I liked to imagine in various situations. That’s how, in 2016, Colin, le chat, was born.

Colin joined Facebook and Instagram. Several times a week, I shared his illustrated adventures on social media, with the sole purpose of bringing a smile to his followers’ faces. A few seconds of sweetness. Then, following many requests, I started to offer original illustrations in different sizes so that people could bring Colin home. So that he could bring colours, poetry and joy to his new owners!

One thing led to another, and The Yellow Cat Studio was born in summer 2017. The Yellow Cat Studio is a colourful, sweet and poetic brand based in Lyon, France, specialising in greetings cards and illustrations with the sole purpose of celebrating people, celebrating the little things and precious moments in life, and spreading kindness.

Are you ready to spread kindness with us?

Founder & Designer


Hi ! My name is Colin.
I am the mascot of the Yellow Cat Studio.

I love eating, sleeping, books, smiling, strawberries, travelling, playing, hiding in greetings cards, spending time with friends and family, mojitos, cherries, swimming, surfing… and making you smile !


Every single design is hand drawn and hand painted with love in our studio, and then turned into cards.

At The Yellow Cat Studio, we want all our products to celebrate the little things and precious moments in life. So we take time to think about our new designs, sketch over and over again…until we have the perfect one. Then we can start our favourite part : painting it with watercolour. When the illustration is finished, we can start turning it into a card and printing it on a beautiful textured paper at our local professional printer.

At The Yellow Cat Studio, we can also add even more value to your precious moments by designing a card, invite or announcement just for you! We sketch it, paint it, print it, package it, send it, and all you have to do is open your mailbox, and enjoy !
