    Connie Lim is of South Korean descent, but grew up in Los Angeles. She has studied at the world famous Central Saint Martins College of Design, and her work has been featured in publications and on several blogs online. Her playing card giclée prints are a real highlight in her canon, and I love her sketchbooks. Wonder on over and see for yourself…

    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.

    Ricardo is from Portugal and now lives in London. He works at D&AD, the famous creative hub home to the famous Yellow Pencil award. On Ricardo’s website you’ll find some excellent projects, both personal and professional. His Gallery of Mo portraits are fun, and I highly recommend taking a look at ‘Ever After’, his MA final project. I like the often whimsical and sometimes provocative nature of his work, so of course we were delighted to receive this suggestion. Now, wonder on over and gasp in delight at the rest of Ricardo’s portfolio…

    Kozyndan is the super-star duo comprised of husband-and-wife Kozue (Kozy) and Dan Kitchens. Their work came into prominence in the early noughties, around the time when the illustration industry was getting new gusto and gaining more media prominence. Their prints were very popular in boutique art and book stores. It was in just such a stores where their beautifully detailed and absurd panoramics first caught my eye. Since then Kozyndan has gone from strength-to-strength, partaking in regular exhibitions, putting out a range of products, diversifying in style, and all the while picking more and more fans along the way.

    The duo seem particularly social and you can find out more about them by visiting their website, tumblr, instagram, and flickr.

    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.

    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.

    ‘Nobrow’ are a top quality ongoing series of books which provide a fantastic platform for illustration and comic art. So what’s so good about the books? Well it seems they are very selective with their artists, ensuring they are visually excellent and are also able to tell a good story. The books as objects themselves are carefully crafted with the best materials, using spot-colour printing (Pantones) to really make sure colours are crisp and vibrant.

    The successes of the English language books have lead Nobrow Press to launch Nobrow France. Their first title ‘Hilda et le Géant de la Nuit’ has been well received, so who knows what next? It’s great to see top quality printed books doing well. Though digital books are great for the environment, there’s something great about the feel and smell of a good book…

    Look out for ‘Nobrow 7: Brave New World’, which is available from June 2012.
