de Giorgi, Sergio

Sergio was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he currently lives with his wife Viviana and two daughters, April and Emma. As a young child, he was obsessed with a TV series about superheroes. Sergio was so into it that he even dressed up in his superhero costume to explore his neighborhood, jumped over rooftops, and went home to write and draw about his superhero adventures. He has never stopped drawing. In 1989, he graduated from La Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredon with a degree in fine arts. Initially, he worked as an industrial designer, scenographer, and an art director for an advertising/TV firm while simultaneously developing his own short stories. When his first daughter was born in 2000, he started writing and illustrating for children. In his free time, Sergio enjoys designing and manufacturing wooden and paper toys.

Stewart-Croker, Jess

Recent illustration graduate Jess Stewart-Croker, is well on her way to carving out a path for herself. Primarily working with traditional media, such as watercolour, gouache and pen and ink, Jess creates painterly and colourful imagery. She has already grabbed a number of impressive assignments for several companies, including several private commissions. Jess can also quite frequently be found with sketchbook in hand making her way through a museum looking for inspiration in the historical references around her. Jess’s goal in her work has always been to capture the beauty and detail of an object in a traditional and intricate manner, and it’s immediately visible in her imagery from travel to product illustrations. What an impressive start to her career! View more of Jess’ work at Folioplanet and her own website.

Rathke, Kathryn

Looking at one of Kathryn Rathke’s line-based illustrations can be a bit like working out a puzzle – was it created using one fluid and continuous line, or many? According to the Seattle-based artist she owes her drawing skills to family connections. Her grandmother taught her to draw and supplied her with books by Arthur Rackham, Maurice Sendak, and William Steig, while her father was president of an advertising agency and used to bring home reams of paper for her to practice on.

She has lots of other creative interests too. She learned to make leather masks in Italy, enjoys German experimental theatre, and sometimes throws parties where her friends must act out vignettes found in a 1912 children’s book called Entertainments for All the Year.

Kathryn did an MFA in Set Design at the University of Wisconsin but was always drawing on the side, sometimes accepting commissions from newspapers and magazines. Eventually she flipped things around and made her illustration work a full-time profession and set design became her hobby.

Kathryn does everything digitally in Photoshop and Illustrator using a Cintiq screen by Wacom.

If she’s doing portraiture work, she draws her subject many times over from different angles. This way she learns about the most important features of their face and can draw it in a way that makes it instantly recognisable.

The line is core to Kathryn’s style and her work is very fluid. Expressive and calligraphic, there’s a unique sense of gesture in her illustrations. She also uses crosshatching to develop surfaces in her images, using layers of lines of varying thickness to build up a texture.

Heiner, Joe & Kathy

In 1964 Kathryn (Kathy) Hughes sat next to me (Joe Heiner) in our sixth grade classroom at Ensign Elementary school in Salt Lake City, Utah. While quietly sitting at her desk, Kathy was struck by a ruler hurled at me (I ducked) by our teacher, Mr. Anderson. We became close friends. After the eighth grade, my family moved to Montreal, P.Q. Canada. It was a long time till I saw Kathy again. Kathy's family stayed in Salt Lake City where Kathy later attended East High School. Kathy married, moved to San Francisco and had one son, Michael. After returning to Salt Lake City, Kathy graduated Cum Laude from University of Utah with a BS degree in Social Sciences. She taught nursery school for two years, became a single parent and a secretary for Architects and Planners in Salt Lake City. I attended Beaconsfield High School near Montreal, studied art and photography at Brigham Young University, and Art Center College of Design, married and had two children. I assisted commercial photographers Ed Goldstien and Carl Furuta. I also assisted David Willardson, illustrator, shooting detailed 4X5 photo reference for his airbrush illustrations. Willardson taught me airbrush techniques and helped develop an airbrush / photographic illustration style. My first portfolio of ten photo / illustrations quickly generated assignments from movie studios, advertising agencies, magazines and recording companies. With the help of the same great reps who represented Willardson, assignments came from across the country. This afforded a move back to Utah. Work went well from Utah and I became a single parent. Fifteen years after sitting by Kathy in sixth grade, she married me. We now have five children (combined) and work together in our studio in Alpine, Utah. Our studio continues to create realistic photo / illustration for clients across the country. Kathy is studio manager and stylist. I am photographer / computer illustrator. Early works were a combination of airbrush and silk screen on photographic prints. Current work is digital, a merging of digital photography and computer illustration. We have received numerous awards including The One Show Gold Award and our work is represented in the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art. Clients include: Lucasfilm, Salisbury Communications, ABC records, Y&R, Foote Cone & Belding, Satchi & Satchi, Merck, McDonalds and Coca Cola. I hope you enjoy our work.

Basaluzzo, Constanza

She was always drawn to the arts and at the young age of 9, Grandpa Luis (her most enthusiastic fan) decided to sponsor her first drawing and painting class.

She graduated from the Universidad de Buenos Aires and concentrated her career on graphic communication for children. She works in digital format and since 2003, has published work in several books, stationary cards, and children’s magazines in Argentina.

Tran, Turine

Vietnamese artist Turine Tran’s imaginative children’s illustrations were inspired by some of the Victorian greats like Arthur Rackham, yet she’s established her own unique style which is charming, elegant and popular with clients who like her nostaligic, painterly approach.

Turine grew up in a house full of books that she could escape into as a child. She was taught to draw by her father. Ho Chi Minh City is a hot, busy and crowded place, but Turine prefers the countryside – particularly when the weather is dark and gloomy. In addition to her art, she does a lot of crafting, from beads to sewing and from knitting to cooking.

Turine studied design in Vietnam, before going to the School of Art, Design and Media in Singapore. She moved to Edinburgh to study for a Masters in Illustration, and later returned to Vietnam.

Images usually start off as rough pencil sketches in Turine’s notebooks as she tries to establish the forms and the composition. Detail and shading are added and then the pencil image is scanned in so that she can add colour in Photoshop. She has designed her own custom brushes within the application.

Turine’s style is intentionally nostalgic. She wants viewers to reminisce when they see her work – as though it’s just been discovered in a dusty old attic. Her Victorian-inspired illustrations are full of whimsical lines and forms, given life by paper textures. Meanwhile, she enjoys creating children’s characters that aren’t just cute and cuddly, but which are vulnerable and unpredictable, and don’t behave in ways that adult viewers expect them to.

Coyle, Laura

Laura Coyle creates distinctive art with wide appeal. Her clients include major brands like Target, Amazon.com, Disney and publications including Better Homes and Gardens and The Wall Street Journal.

Laura made her first foray into product design with Hasbro. She was called upon to refresh the classic Parcheesi board game, a design that had remained unchanged since the early 1900's. The challenge was to create illustrations that would highlight the game's origins in India and enhance its appeal to kids today. In working on Parcheesi, she discovered a love for designing products that can connect with people every day.

Since then, Laura's gift bag, wrap and paper ware designs have appeared on the shelves at Target, Papyrus and Hallmark.

Laura grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and earned her BFA from Auburn University. She started her freelance career living in the East Village in New York City, dropping her portfolios off with art directors while working part time as an assistant to renowned jazz photographer Jimmy Katz. Laura now lives back in her hometown with her husband Clayton, an architect, in their 1950's ranch house which they renovated together.
