Hello! I'm Kristy Gaunt. You've probably seen me on the internet referred to as 'ytsirkgaunt.' And yes, in case you were wondering, it is simply my first name backwards combined with my last name.

I'm an Illustrative Designer & Printmaker. I'm also a Hand-letterer, Animator, Book Artist, and Print Shop Owner. I also like to regard to myself as an Arts & Crafts Enthusiast.

I graduated from Florida State University in 2017, where I majored in Studio Art, with focuses in Text + Media and Printmaking, and minored in Media Communications and Art History.

Currently, I work as an Illustrative Designer at The Penny Hoarder. I am also the owner of Breakfast For Dinner, Print CoA print shop bringing you a brunch of eggscellent original & custom prints, apparel, & lettering goods printed by hand that will leave you feeling full.

I have a passion for illustration, printmaking, graphic & web design, hand-lettering, animation, and photography. I'm consistently inspired, and itching to create. I have done work both in an office, and as a freelance artist. I love learning new ways to create, and experimenting in new programs. often experiment in other mediums.

Most importantly, my veins are filled with coffee, I take too many photos of my two cats & one dog, and I never say no to breakfast food (I even say yes to having breakfast for dinner *wink wink*) I also like to consider myself a full-time traveler, explorer, and adventurer. And above everything else, I'm just trying to be as good of a person in this world as my dog thinks I am.
