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 the ‘Everyday Love’ website to find the artwork of Nidhi Chanani. She is incredibly productive and sells prints, greetings cards, magnets, books and more. It’s no wonder her artwork is so popular; the refreshingly bright and warm illustrations are simply a joy to look at.
Nidji was born in Calcutta, India and later moved to San Francisco, USA. Here are some interesting honours from her About Page:
“In April of 2012 she was honored at the White House as a Champion of Change. Her media appearances include CNN-Anderson Cooper and BBC Radio. Her work has been featured on Fab, Daily Candy, and Scoutmob. She has worked with Hasbro, Paramount Pictures, ABC, Boom Studios and a variety of other clients. Her work is sold in retail shops across the country including the American Museum of Natural History, the Cartoon Art Museum, and Urban Bazaar.”You may also like:
Cally worked for several years as an in-house illustrator for the greetings card industry. She now works freelance from her pink-themed studio in Newcastle, England. Her contemporary, fun style is dainty and delightful, featuring a host of cute characters.
“Inspiration comes from almost anything; a countryside walk, star gazing, music, a picnic on the beach, tending her vegetable patch, attempting to skip stones, even panda bears. (Though she’s yet to meet one).”
Bee is from Melbourne, Australia. She’s a whiz at creating simple, bright, cute characters and patterns that find their way onto cushions, fabrics, greetings cards and more! Looking through her blog, you’ll find a master class in self-branding. It’s also evident that she lives and breathes this brand (baking cakes, making jam, gardening and collecting buttons). This is a good platform to sell her own products and it’s always reassuring to approach an illustrator whose style is consistent; that way you know what to expect.
Jennifer’s tempting aesthetics have graced magazines, greetings cards and almost a dozen children’s books. Her soft outlines and textured colours are like visual hugs. She currently lives in Minneapolis, USA.
Clients include Simon & Schuster, Random House and Designer Greetings.
