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.
Future posts here we go! I am usually not this organised when it comes to blog posts but I’ll try for a month and see how it goes. I have a huge stack of artists that I want to ‘collect’ and share with you on my blog, hopefully to inspire and give you something interesting to look at that you haven’t seen before. Below are some snippet images to give you an idea about the artists I will post about next so stay tuned.
If this is the first time you have come across my little blog I like to talk about all sorts of artists and not just sticking to one discipline or style.
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).
I came across this shop on Redbubble and thought the prints were so eye catching and vibrant that I had to share them! Tanor prints by an unnameable Russian artist, who works with oil paints, water colour, pen and ink to Illustrator and Photoshop. This graphic design artist is inspired by the macro world and nature, and looks at ornaments and antiques to visualize the colours and patterns in the way her designs take hold. You can really see this in her work (see below). For more check out her portfolio, only 350 prints to look through!!
