ILLUSTRATOR Holly Shorthall saw her career kick started when she was noticed by the Kardashians after drawing Kim and Kanye. But now the Dubliner thinks its time to move on.

Now a semi-regular contributor to Cosmopolitan magazine and with requests flooding in every week, Holly's hard work is paying off.

"I've done my working for free," she said.

With appearances on RTE and TV3, the illustrator, famous for her uncanny celeb pictures, is building her profile bit by bit.

"I've been so busy this year already," Holly (25) told the Diary.

"I'm trying to move away from the Kardashians," she joked.

"I'll always be 100pc thankful but I think I need to move on."

One illustration she is eager to do this year however is for pal Maia Dunphy who shared news of her impending new arrival last week.

Holly is excited for her Maia's baby news.

"I can't wait to do a drawing of her and her baby," she said.
