CheekyBucket was started by Simon Williams in 2011 who designed and created all the artwork on the CheekyBucket site. We are based in Sydney Australia however all artwork can be shipped worldwide.

My idea for CheekyBucket came from a desire to produce art for children that has a different approach to the simplistic designs with flat colours and whimsical images that are predominantly available for children’s walls. Images that weren’t readily available when searching for something for my children's bedrooms. So I set out to produce designs that are attractive to children, but also have a traditional artistic feel.

Traditional in the first steps of their creation, each character is designed on paper with a pencil before hand painting using premier painting software.
CheekyBucket images were originally designed to be bigger than the average children's wall art. The original canvases were just under a metre in length and 30 cm tall, but after much research these large scale images have been reduced in size to fit neatly into pre-made frames. Though if you do want a big canvas get in touch because it can be arranged!
I have also been lucky enough to work for Scholastic Australia and so far illustrated seven books for the 3-7 year old age range.

Prior to creating CheekyBucket I worked in the Animation industry animating on the Oscar® nominated 'Famous Fred’ & ‘The Canterbury Tales: The Wife of Bath’s Tale’. I have also worked as an Animation Director and Storyboard Artist on multiple children's television series including ‘Angelina Ballerina’, ‘Kipper the Dog’, ‘Charlie & Lola’, ‘Erky Perky’ and ‘CJ the DJ’.

I have also illustrated for children's television magazines, cd music covers and educational and learning programmes for both children and adults.

We are always adding new characters to the CheekyBucket family so if you choose not to purchase today, bookmark us and return soon.
