    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.

    Award winning illustrator Emiliano resides in fashionable Milan, Iltaly. He has an intelligent approach towards illustration and is full of good ideas.

  6. Penelope Dullaghan

    1 / 4

    Penelope Dullaghan resides in North Carolina, USA. She started working as a freelance illustrator in 2004, previously having worked as an art director for an advertising agency. She is probably quite well known in the illustration community for running the excellent website Illustration Friday (recently featured on The Lounge). Her illustration style is beautiful and she has a brilliant talent for hand-drawn typography. She has created some excellent logos for various companies, showing a good understanding of graphic design. A lot of illustrators attempt to ‘over-complicate’ logos when they are given the chance, but Penny keeps them simple which makes them easily applicable and resizable. I’ll also add that whenever we’ve had the privilege of corresponding with Penny she has been friendly and professional; always a pleasure.

    Her clients include The New York Times, Starbucks, Oprah and Harper Collins.
