You can see more of her rather stern-faced characters on her website, and blog.

    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.
