a bit about us...
Trafalgar's Square is an illustration company featuring the winsome illustrations of Kit Chase. Owned and operated by Kit and her husband, Adam, and based in Sunny California, Trafalgar's Square seeks to create imagination-sparking, happiness-evoking, high quality products for the young at heart. We believe that children's art should inspire a love for nature, spark the imagination, and kindle curiosity. Since its beginning in 2008, Trafalgar's Square has added a bit of magic to thousands of homes and nurseries the world over.
Kit grew up dabbling in sketches (fun fact: you can find her earliest pieces on the inside of her mother's closet door, medium: red lipstick), but any real desire to pursue it seriously came with the birth of her first little one. The idea of creating characters and turning them into friends for her daughter to go to sleep and wake up to was the source of her inspiration, and from it blossomed Trafalgar's Square.
Kit is a self taught artist, and she writes and illustrates children's picture books (three so far, with a fourth one coming out in 2018-all published by G.P. Putnam and Sons, an imprint of Penguin Books). She has done design work for clients including Pampers (yep, we're talking diapers), Evenflo, and Papyrus. She's fond of corgis, apple crisp, reading(!!!), tea cups, old black and white films, flower gardening, and golden hour rambles with her husband and five children.
As a kid, Adam always dreamed of being a super hero when he grew up, so when Kit came up with the idea of starting Trafalgar's Square, he was more than happy to find a way to make that dream become a reality. Learning how to troubleshoot printers, and reproducing her illustrations onto different mediums was a challenge he cheerfully took on, and continues to do to this day. Adam is the jack-of-all-trades of Trafalgar's Square and handles all production, shipping, and customer service, with a little muse to Kit on the side. He enjoys whittling, collecting maps, bbq sandwiches with sweet potato fries, and building sandcastles at the beach with his family.
