    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.

    I love these zany vector creations by Italian graphic designer and illustrator iThinkp.! The website is full of mad characters, and I particularly like the one in the footer (a little runaway blob holding up an arm which is a holding up a pencil)! From looking at all the interesting projects on show, I can see that iThinkp.! brings a bit of fun to everything. And how about those bright colours!

    There is an embarrassingly good ensemble of work to be enjoyed on Riccardo’s website. This ranges from illustration, paint on canvas, short narratives, clothing and more. I love the way his shapes seem to fold over each other effortlessly to become beautiful pieces of work.

    Riccardo was born in Alexandria in 1975 and now lives in Casale Monferrato in Italy. His influences include Picasso, Munari and Rodari.

    Cristian Grossi is a graphic designer, illustrator and fabric designer from Italy. Some of his designs can be very minimal, yet others are intricate and crammed from of details. His vibrant colours and clean vector style line work are what epitomise his visual creations. The abstract nature of his designs can be hypnotic, strange and disturbing, in the best sense of the word.

    Angenia Creations by Tonia

    Tonia is an Italian jewellery maker and aspiring children’s book illustrator. I hope you find her work inspiring, despite the fact that the work I’ve selected to show here is not illustration. Tonia is inspired by Japan, and it shows in her work, which is an interesting blend of manga and western children’s toys. I’m sure there would be a sizeable market for her beautiful jewellery. I’m probably not her target audience (30+ male), but I can definitely appreciate what she does!
