Great illustrations are more than pretty pictures that frame a good story: they catch the eye of the reader, describe your world and characters (are they blonde? Black? Do they like cats or dogs? What are they wearing? What kind of house do they live in?). The illustrations often extend beyond your words to tell a story of their own. It’s like a pas de deux - a beautiful complex dance of two distinct entities that have to move as one.
It is creating this perfect mesh of picture and words that fuels my passion for illustrating children’s books.
I must say, it’s also great fun.
I was born in Italy but I've recently moved to London to pursue my illustrator career dream.
