Potter, illustrator, painter, animator; it’s always been hard to pin down Charlotte Mei. Now the multi-faceted artist is dipping her creative toes into comics with the launch of ‘Pippette and Dudley’s Charming Dog Adventure.’ in collaboration with Shortbox comics.

“The story is basically one about friendship, and holding onto one another as we change and grow,” Charlotte writes me about Pipette and Dudley. “The main characters are a precocious teenage princess/influencer and her dog friend Dudley. Dudley is artistic and sensitive, and the book follows their relationship during a transitional time in their lives.”
