    Swedish illustrator Andrea Femerstrand works in the games industry and freelances in her spare time. Her digital painting skills and visual style are well suited to story books and concept art; she’s also a talented character designer. You can see a lot of her step-by-step process on her Behance page, which is very insightful.

    There is lovely warmth to Emilia Dziubak’s illustrations. Her children’s books are beautiful, and she’s even created a children’s cook book! I am totally smitten by her work and am sure many of you will be too. I had such a tough time picking some of my favourite illustrations to share with you; I highly recommend visiting her blog or Behance page.

    Based in Belgium, illustrator Joris Thys has a fun, carefree style. His characters expressions are exaggerated, and his perspectives are distorted, making his style fun and accessible for children. Mr. Thys’ watercolour pieces are often rendered analogously, and by way of complementing colours he directs focus and creates impact. To see more of Joris Thys’ work, check out his website.

    Olga Stern is a Toronto-based illustrator and visual-development artist. Her portfolio is a wash of cheerful characters and mediums. Although, it is pretty clear to see her biggest strength is her sweeping background designs. They are exquisitely textured, the colours are vibrant but harmonious, and they are in every sense of the word picturesque. Stern’s previous clients include Pixar, Laika, ACME filmworks, and Head Gear Animation. You can find more of her work by heading to her website.
