Overview

Hello everyone ! My name is Daniela Frongia (aka Cais) and I am 35 years old. I’m digital book illustrator and concept artist. By the age of 4 I was already showing a passion and talent for drawing, inspired by the colourful style of the Disney classics and years later from Manga. I studied and obtained a degree from the Art School in Italy and after a certificate as Graphic Designer. Next I dedicated myself to mastering airbrush technique on motorbikes and Cars and then focused on digital graphics especially photo retouching . In 2009 I moved in London (UK) where I started again to make airbrush painting but this time on canvas with serious themes, such as child abuse, freedom, violence on women etc. After my first exhibition, I have raised interest also from others galleries in London and from a local weekly “Londra sera”, where I got my first publication, but my passion for the cartoon never disappear, so in 2010 I made the decision to dedicate myself to illustrating children’s books creating cais arts illustrations studio in London (UK) The experience in drawing, the environment of a new city, the new technologies used to draw ( I use a Cintiq) plus the inspiration coming from Studio Ghibli, Pixar and some independent illustrator gave me the good chance to use, since the beginning, my own style and after some months I was working full-time as an illustrator with an American Publisher. My work has appeared in various blogs and different American magazines such as Mystica Magazine, Screamin Mamas and Dark Realm Magazine . I illustrated over 50 children’s books till this moment and I continually collaborates with authors and publishers from all around the world. In 2013 I was part among the top ten UK’s MOST ENGAGED WOMEN ON LINKEDIN.”
