Cheyan Lefebvre

Cheyan Lefebvre – Designer

Illustrator, cartoonist and character designer. Whimsical, colorful yet diverse style. I care about diversity, inclusion, animals, nature.


With 20+ years of experience as an illustrator and graphic designer, I'm available for collaborations involving book illustration, children's book illustration, photomontage, comics, and webcomics.

I'm passionate about various projects and themes, including children's books, animals, nature, diversity, minority representation, humanitarian work, anti-bullying initiatives, spirituality, mental health, women's matters, and ecology. Don't worry; I won't try to squeeze them all into one project (unless you want me to, of course).

I'm versatile in styles, and as a graphic designer, I can mix illustration with layout, typography, and logos to create a cohesive final product. Whether you're looking for something whimsical and playful or sleek and modern, I've got you covered.

Establishing the level of illustration you need, the number of images, your deadline, and your budget will be the first step toward a harmonious and joyful collaboration.

I'm fluent in English and French.

Now, let's create something unique together 😊

Work experience


May, 2022 — Present

I have always been fascinated by motion design and animation, and recently, I had the opportunity to train in this field. It has been a fantastic journey so far. I have enjoyed collaborating with talented musicians and labels to create music videos and visualizers for platforms like Spotify.

In addition, I have been fortunate enough to work with some clients such as Danone and Van Cleef & Arples.

While I love the cartoony style, I am always open to exploring different styles and techniques to create unique and visually appealing animations that leave a lasting impression on the viewer.


Nov, 2012 — Present

As an illustrator, I've worked with authors, publishers, and various clients, creating illustrations for their books and advertising campaigns. I also create illustrations for my stories, so I understand the wonderful feeling of bringing your imagination to life through images and sharing them with the world.

In addition to my work as an illustrator, I also have a webcomic that has gained a following of over 100,000 readers from around the world. It's been a fantastic experience to see my characters and stories resonate with so many people. It has also opened up doors for me to collaborate with several brands and clients such as Universal Music Group, Long Tall Sally, Deva Curl, Naturally Curly... with my illustrations being featured and shared on various websites and social media platforms, including, AFROPUNK,, Topito, Creapills, Buzzfeed, Bored Panda, and more.


Jul, 2005 — Jun, 2022 (almost 17 years)

Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work on various design projects that have allowed me to explore my creativity. From designing websites that captivate the user's attention to crafting logos that perfectly embody a brand's identity, I've always strived to create visually appealing designs that effectively achieve their intended purpose.

Additionally, I've had the pleasure of working on movie posters, CD covers, and layout designs that have challenged me to think outside the box and develop unique solutions that convey the intended message. Finally, my expertise in photo retouching has enabled me to enhance natural beauty and bring out the best in every image.

Cheyan was so easy to work with. She had great ideas, was flexible and responsive. She interpreted the brief really thoughtfully and I felt like I had not only a great collaborator on my project but also an ally. A very smooth project delivered on time and zero friction points. Highly recommend!
