Ladies of the Lakes by Myfanwy Trsitram

Myfanwy Tristram

I’ve been drawing comics since I was a young child. Back then, they starred my favourite but obstreperous teddy, Pink Bear.

These days they’re more likely to focus on politics, parenthood and the realities of middle age.

  1. Myf – I think your blog is fantastic, beautifully written. Children’s book should be a piece of cake ! Terrific synopsis of our first Illustration class.
    Your work is stunning & should be published. You’re exceptionally talented.
    Have a great week. Lucy x

  2. Myf – you’re flying aren’t you !! I love love love your fantastic birds. They’re ace.
    Me next to join B.I.G then… L x

  3. Hey Myf – Are you maybe the Miffy Tristram that was running some kind of comic/zine in Brighton in the late 80’s? If so “Hi”, if not, love your drawings.

  4. Well, Myfanwy, and ‘Hello’. We are a rare breed. I’ve only met one before – and I’ve been searching for more. Thanks for following my blog, Chittle Chattle.

    • Helloo! Yes, I found your blog while browsing artistic tags, so the name coincidence was a bonus! Looking forward to reading more.

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog, Myf. Your sketches are excellent – are you a member of BiG by any chance? If so, I’ve probably met you at some meeting or other. Do you frequent any of the amazing array of life-drawing sessions available in Brighton? If not, you should – you’d be in heaven!

    • That’s very kind of you, thank you :)
      I am a member of BiG, but I am a shamefully inactive one who has not yet been to any meetings. I must change that soon.
      I used to attend Jake Spicer’s life drawing classes because I was working in an office right next to New England House, and I could drop in on a lunch time. Alas, (although, not really alas, because I love it) I now work from home, and it’s too far to get to in my lunch hour. I really should make the effort to do some evening classes though. I really like how the scrutiny required for life-drawing has a knock-on effect in all other areas of drawing.

  6. I’ve certainly found that to be the case since I rediscovered the life-drawing habit a couple of years ago. It’s part of my weekly routine now and I get withdrawal symptoms if I miss a couple of sessions!

  7. Hi Myf
    This is the first time I’ve written to a Myf. I was looking for ideas for my daughter’s 10 Lush Birthday Party Invite and your drawing came up with your name. Just thought it was a funny coincidence. Love your drawings.

  8. Hi Myf,
    This is the first time I’ve written to a Myf. I was looking for inspiration for my daughter’s 10th Lush Birthday party invite when I found yours! I just thought it was a funny coincidence… I will be attempting to design my daughter’s invite. Apparently I’m a Graphic Designer. I love your illustrations.

    • *Waves* Hi there! How great. I wonder if there’s a propensity for Myfs to book Lush parties for their daughters…
      Good luck with your design :) – would love to see it when it’s ready.

  9. HI! I’ve been trying to find you and I finally did! I am a feature film director and writer and have written a film called Magpie. May I message you about featuring one of your Magpie cartoon drawings on the film’s website and having it show up in the film itself? I would be very pleased to embed a link to myfawnytristram.com so fans and supporters of the film can come here to learn about you!
