Rébora, Cecilia

Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Cecilia Rebora belongs to a creative family of painters, a sculptor, and a wood carver. As long as she can remember, Cecilia could be found with a crayon in her hand. Shortly after beginning her studies in the arts, Cecilia discovered that what she enjoyed most in life was telling stories with pictures. She studied for three years at the Josep Serra I Abella School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. It was there that she truly fell in love with the profession. She has since published 18 children’s books and contributes to a popular children’s magazine called Tareas E Ilustraciones. She and her husband, Luis, have welcomed a new edition to their family named Mateo, a delightful boy who sleeps most of the time. When not illustrating, she enjoys sipping a hot cappuccino and taking in the sun on a chilly morning. Cecilia’s goals are to continue illustrating for a very long time and to always see the smile on her son’s face.

Vernon, Katie

Katie Vernon is an illustrator who has spent most of her life in the midwest but whose heart belongs in the mountains. Her inspiration comes from being a florist, working with alpacas, and living on a bus. Some of her favorite things include rearranging furniture, seltzer water, and two different species of animals becoming friends. Katie is also rather fond of her partner, daughter, and part-dingo dog. In 2015 Katie won the Special Studio Award in Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search competition. She is thrilled to be represented by the amazing team at Lilla Rogers Studio.

Johnson, Kim

Kim Johnson studied at the Corcoran School of Art before beginning a career as a graphic designer. After designing one corporate brochure too many, she thought it would be more fun to be an animator, which was indeed the case. She subsequently moved on to designing and directing animation for television commercials and program openings, such as "The Nanny" and "The Rosy O'Donnell Show". This was even more fun than animating had been, as she was now able to boss around numerous talented persons. She currently lives in suburban Connecticut, with her family, including two daughters who boss her around mercilessly. Poetic justice? Perhaps. Her illustrative style today reflects her roots in animation, and includes her own animated work..

Valeria Cis was born and raised in the city of Rosario, Argentina, where she still lives with her son Facundo, her little daughter Olivia and her husband Sebastián. As a little girl, Valeria spent many hours painting and drawing especially on rainy days. She also loved to read and among her favorites were stories about animals, princes and princesses from foreign lands, and their adventures. Once she realized that she could merge her two passions, she dedicated her time and talent to illustrating children’s books. Valeria studied fine art at The University of Humanities and Arts in Rosario. Her illustration, inspired by daily events and ordinary objects, is brought to life with special attention to detail and pattern. When not illustrating, she likes to spend her time playing with her son, Facundo and cat, Roberta and collecting wooden chairs and old irons.

Hartas, Leo

I am a UK based illustrator with over 25 years experience, in children's books, novelty books and graphic novels.

I can't get enough!

Gynux

Gynux was born in Villefranche-sur-Saône, France and currently resides in Lyon. As a child, he had always been drawn to storytelling and illustration. Growing up, he was impressed by Rembrandt’s use of contrast in his compositions, Hirao Miyasaki’s use of detail and unique characters in his cartoons, and the color palette of Dominique Louis’s illustrations. He studied industrial engineering in college and later worked as a furniture and graphic designer. However, he came to realize that there were some boundaries which had been suppressing his creativity by solely focusing on industrial design. He craved the spontaneity that comes from being free to recreate anything from his wildest dreams and his farthest imaginations. Luckily, Gynux met some illustrators at an exhibit which brought him back into the realm of drawing and illustration. His inspiration comes from a wide range of sources – cartoons, fine arts, architecture, film and especially music. While not illustrating, he loves to travel and has visited Turkey, Austria, Spain, England, Greece, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, and Germany. Gynux also enjoys spending his free time riding his bike through the forest and playing his piano.

Bradford, Tim

Living right next to a nature reserve in Nottingham, Tim Bradford also has the convenience of being just half a mile from the city centre. From alpine landscapes to geometry and animals, he’s inspired by nature and also loves drawing people of all sizes, shapes and nationalities.

Tim studied for a BA Hons in Illustration at Lincoln University and an MA in Illustration and Animation at Kingston University London.

Everything begins as a pencil sketch, which is then coloured up digitally using Photoshop and Illustrator. With his animation skills, many clients ask him to create work for both print and digital projects where motion is required. For a more physical feel to his work, Tim is increasingly introducing hand drawn elements as well.

Most of Tim’s imagery is quirky, fun and character based, and his work often incorporates custom typography along with some movement. Life, energy, charm and wit are what he strives for when he creates an illustration, and he likes to find visual solutions that are easy on the eye and keep you looking.

Larkum, Adam

It’s a love of drawing that drives Adam Larkum, and it’s something he practices every day, constantly coming up with quirky new characters and putting them in hair-raising situations. And if you chat with Adam for a while he has a few real life hair-raising situations to recount. While he was a teenager, his family lived in Alexandria, Virginia for a while where Adam became the projectionist in the town’s cinema. When the bulb blew during the scariest part of Friday The 13th the crowd poured out of the cinema like a lynch mob…

This didn’t deter Adam from studying animation once he got back to the UK, and as a student he won a competition to create a short film for MOMI and Channel 4. Once his career producing animated commercials was under way, he became an illustrator as well. He’s now created over 30 children’s books, and illustrates for magazines and packaging.

Adam studied illustration and animation, and received a BA followed by an MA from the Edinburgh College of Art.

Adam believes every commission should start with a pencil in one hand and an eraser in the other, and is never afraid to erase whole areas of a drawing if they aren’t right. He loves working in ink on paper and then shifting into Photoshop to bring the piece together. If his work were a film, he says, it would be an Ealing Comedy – fun, fast and eccentric.

OFerrall, Zoe More

Zoe More O’Ferrall’s studio is situated in Notting Hill. It’s a prime position for an illustrator who loves markets. She’s right next to Golborne Road Antiques Market and minutes away from Portobello Road with its famous stalls selling old papers, postcards, vintage clothing, furniture, prints and more.

Further inspiration comes from a love of film and photography, like the colourful and imaginative work of Autumn de Wilde, Tim Walker, Wes Anderson and Juergen Teller. BBC Radio 4 is played constantly in her studio as she creates imagery for fashion and food brands, retailers, advertising agencies, publishers and more.

Zoe’s training began at Wimbledon School of Art, and she went on to do a BA at the London College of Communication as well as a postgraduate course at Central Saint Martins.

Zoe usually works in pen and ink – she has a broad collection of pens to choose from - and loves to draw by hand. She only uses a computer to plan compositions and to touch up the handmade images. Now and again she’ll experiment with collage and screen printing too.

Scott, Vicky

Growing up in West London near Richmond and the Thames, Victoria Scott was always drawing and making things as a child, and knew from an early age that she wanted to be an illustrator.

Her influences come from the early 20th century, such as Art Deco and Art Nouveau, but she also enjoys a bit of 60s psychedelia.

Vicky went to the Wimbledon School of Art and Design for foundation, and then went to the University of Brighton to gain a BA in Illustration.

All of Vicky’s illustrations are created as handmade paper collages. By its very nature, Vicky’s work is highly figurative, and you’d describe it as quirky, colourful, bold, graphic and a little retro. She likes to bring a narrative element into her work as much as possible.
