    Based in Rome, Italy, Daniela Volpari is a freelance art director and children’s book illustrator. She graduated in 2009 from the Scuola Internazionale di Comics (International School of Comics), which is quite possibly the best school I have ever heard of. Ms Volpari landed her first published work the very same year creating editorial illustrations for Un duetreStella and Grazia. Also in the same busy year publishers Paramica released a children’s book based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème, retold by Fbrizio Silei and beautifully illustrated by Ms Volpari. Since then Ms Volpari has work consistently. She has received multiple awards and regularly exhibits her work at Gallery Nucleus, most recently taking part in the Imaginary Friends event.

    Ms Volpari’s gouache paintings are warm and playful. They are harmonious in tone but often dynamic in composition. I particularly love her illustrations for Oliver Twist. They have a very “Illustrator’s Lounge” feel to me, that may just be because of all the top hats. You can find Daniela Volpari on twitter, facebook, and etsy, and find more of her work on her website and blog.

    Monster Riot are the collaborative talents of Catherine McDaid and Jason Ruddy. They make quite the duo; Catherine creates plush toys and Jason illustrates. Their styles work so well together, with their fun colours and simple shapes. It’ll be interesting where their brand will take them next! They have already exhibited in Berlin, San Francisco and Paris. Clients include Nike, Pictoplasma and Digital Artist Magazine.

    Zak Doodle is a children’s illustrator from Greece. She really knows how to lose herself in her mark making. Her creations are beautiful in their naiveté; they depict an unspoilt innocence that children possess and we tend to lose as we get older and are influenced more and more by our surroundings.

    Visit Zak’s Facebook page to see more of her work. She also has an Etsy shop and you can read an interview with her on the Milly and Friends website.

    With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, now would be a good time to order gifts and cards. For anyone who’s into Star Wars, PJ’s ‘Yoda Cupid’ card could be just what you’re looking for…If not, PJ also has some fantastic giclee prints available, such as his Brigitte Bardot.

    Thanks for getting in touch, PJ.

    Welsh illustrator Suzanne Carpenter creates simple, punchy vector illustrations which look amazing when they’re plastered on something. On her website you’ll find her portfolio, picture books, patterns and more. Her Etsy shop is definitely worth looking at for a treat. I love her ‘Day of the Dead’ greeting cards! What’s also interesting about Suzanne is her school visits. Check the Workshops page on her website for more information.
