One of the leading artists and influencers of the Art Deco period, Romain de Tirtoff also known as Erte. He lived just under a 100 years producing a huge body of work in the 20th century, capturing the essence of the fashion and design world in print. Erte’s talents flourished across the visual arts, including fashion, jewellery, interiors, set design and opera.
Working in the realms of publishing and illustration from 2007, Ana Yael has developed a rich portfolio of editorial work, working for Spanish and French magazines as well as book cover designs for notable publishing houses. She runs two art galleries in Barcelona for other artists and graphic designers whilst continuing to add to her own body of work.
With over 10 years experience in the art and design industry, Parisian illustrator Babeth Lafon has made a name for herself in fashion, beauty and life style magazines. Her work has appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, Architectural Digest, Glamour and Marie Claire. Her clients include L’Oreal, L’Occitane, Bare Escentuals, Stella Artois and ELLE.
Aside from her ‘hip’ name, Babeth’s drawings are commercial and complimentary to the label’s look she works with. I can see why her pastel colour palette and light washes work well for beauty in particular, they are fresh illustrations that are easy on the eyes . What I mean by this is as the ‘magazine consumer’ we tend to glance very quickly and turn to the next page, as with anything we need to be pulled in! Babeth’s illustrations do just that, making the products or content far more interesting. Check out her work below (I really like her perfume bottle illustrations).
