1. In Their Own Words – Cleonique Hilsaca

    Freelance illustrator, Cleonique Hilsaca’s work exudes a sense of calm created by washing the canvas with pastel colours. Viewers can’t help but be disarmed by her joyful, round characters yet Cleonique is not afraid to employ these same techniques to address deeper emotions and social issues. This juxtaposition between style and tone is used to great effect. Cleonique shares her drawing process and some of her favourite projects with Illustrator’s Lounge.
