    Conrad Roset

    I cannot overemphasise how beautiful Conrad Roset’s illustrations are. I am particularly besotted with his work for the children’s book Ensueños. Mr Roset is from Terrassa, Spain and studied at the Joso School and at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Straight out of university, his online portfolio caught the attention retailers Zara. Working there for a year he developed his style and took the opportunity to learn from other illustrators.

    Aurore Damant

    Aurore Damant is an illustrator whom all of us at the Lounge have been long-time fans of. Her illustrations are spirited and humorous. They combine flowing shapes with a harmonious pastel pallet. Importantly, even though simplified, her characters are distinct and their emotions bountiful.

    M. Sasek (1916 – 1980)

    Born 16th November 1916, Miroslav Sasek grew up in Prague. After finishing school he wanted to study to become a painter, but his parents were disapproving, so to appease them he decided to studied architecture instead. He did however study drawing and painting with Czech landscape artist Otakar Blažíček, and later in 1947 moved to Paris to study at the École des Beaux Arts. Just at the onset of his illustration career, prompted by the 1948 Czech coup, Mr Sasek decided not to return to his homeland and instead emigrate to Munich.

    Mary Lundquist

    Mary Lundquist is an illustrator based in Los Angeles. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and is currently working on several children’s books. I assume, one at least, will be based on her character Bunny, whom can be spotted throughout her portfolio. Mrs Lundquist’s style utilise her soft pencil work by adding a simple wash of watercolours, giving her illustrations a real tranquil feeling.
