"I was born in Bogotá, Colombia. I studied Graphic Design at the University Jorge Tadeo Lozano. Also I have taken painting and drawing workshops.

I work as a freelance illustrator since many years ago, I have published for different agencies and publishers and participated in several exhibitions. 

I love animals, look at the stars and illustrating children's books!"

"Being a children's illustrator is the most rewarding job! I have truly found my passion in life and hope you can see this through my work!

I work entirely digitally in Adobe Photoshop, using my Wacom Cintiq. On average, a children's book takes me 1-3 months to complete. 

I am extremely hard working and passionate about my work! I enjoy working on projects for babies and toddlers and love illustrating animals."
Susan Eaddy’s whimsical illustrations are 3D relief sculptures created entirely out of plasticine or polymer clay.

Susan was an Art Director for fifteen years, during which time she has illustrated over 80 books in the educational market, won international 3D illustration awards and a Grammy nomination. Her clay illustrated trade books include Papa Fish’s Lullaby, and her newest board books licensed by the Smithsonian Institution; First Look at Aircraft, First Look at Trucks & First Look at Rescue Vehicles.

Chris grew up somewhere between the canals of south west France, the Swiss mountains and the Essex estuary.

His work has been described as charming and visually striking with a sharp graphic style. His illustrations are populated with rambunctious characters that are a cleverly crafted mix of an uncomplicated line style, wonky perspectives and conspicuous colour choices.
"I illustrate digitally and in my work I try to encompass all things whimsical, quirky, decorative and delightful."

well, im off on maternity leave waiting to pop miss flump-a-lump out and i have finally started working on my book!  im REALLY excited about it and cant wait to try to take it a bit further.... updates to follow! anyway this evening I have been mooching (nothing new there then!) through some of the portfolios on one of my favourite websites and for my memories sake and the enjoyment of anyone that may stumble across my blog.... ENJOY!!
How cool are these?!  I didn't quite 'get' the first sentence of the post when I read it... "Take a close look: ‘This is clearly a painting’. That’s what you’ll most likely expect, wouldn’t you? Now, take a further look and imagine that these are real life people with paint on them..."

Now I get it and again...How cool?!  Alexa Meade, from USA, has created a new art form it seems. She likes to blend people into her creations in a pretty unusual way. With her aesthetic, she manages to play around skillfully combing paint, portraiture, photography and performance.

Alexa Meade thinks completely backwards. Most artists use acrylic paints to create portraits of people on canvas. But not Meade - she applies acrylic paints on her subjects and makes them appear to be a part of the painting!

Meade is an installation artist based in the Washington, DC area. Her innovative use of paint on the three dimensional surfaces of found objects, live models, and architectural spaces has been incorporated into a series of installations that create a perceptual shift in how we experience and interpret spatial relationships.

When asked about her about her thought process. Here is what she said:

"I paint representational portraits directly on top of the people I am representing. The models are transformed into embodiments of the artist's interpretation of their essence. When captured on film, the living, breathing people underneath the paint disappear, overshadowed by the masks of themselves."
I think this is my favourite.......

Love love LOVE this artist!!  Again spotted an image previously now mooching for more info!!  Enjoy!

oooooh I have found her website.... take a look....


This stunning sculpture, Continuum, was created by artist Karen Margolis.  The clusters of pods and tulip-like shapes are made from maps and handmade papers.  If you look closely in the photos, you'll see the incredible textured effects of a soldering iron.  I have to say that those are the most beautiful burn holes I've ever seen!
