Emily McGaughey - Illustrator


Tell our customers why your brand is the best!

I like to think that my brand makes people happy! I'm always trying to make people smile with my bright and colorful artwork and sticker designs!


What's your story?

I started out as a Graphic Designer when I first moved to Pittsburgh, but I slowly realized that I really liked drawing and illustration more. At first I would just draw for fun in the evenings and on weekends, but eventually I started making products and it grew into my full-time job!





What product do we NEED to know about and why?

The Love Pittsburgh Sticker Sheet! I had such a great time illustrating these Pittsburgh-themed cats, and I think it's so cute!! My favorite cat is the angry one playing with a pierogi!


In three words, why do you love Pittsburgh?

Big but Small! I love that Pittsburgh is made up of a bunch of small, unique neighborhoods - it really feels like a small town, but you're living in a city!


How can people find out more about you? 

I post the most on instagram: @shop_emilym. My website is, and I run a monthly sticker club on Patron:
