Aurore Damant is an illustrator whom all of us at the Lounge have been long-time fans of. Her illustrations are spirited and humorous. They combine flowing shapes with a harmonious pastel pallet. Importantly, even though simplified, her characters are distinct and their emotions bountiful.
Based in Paris, she is a Gobelins animation graduate, now working as a character designer, art director and freelance illustrator. Collaborating with top animation companies including Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and The Illuminated Film, Ms Damant has helped develop TV shows Gravity Falls, Robotboy, Eliot Kid, and Commander Clark. She is constantly writting and illustrating children’s books, to date some of the titles including Un Ukulélé Pour Junior, Un Métier Pour Maurice and four volumes of The Haunted Library.
