Claire Hummel is a great illustrator.
And clearly she loves princesses and Disney films.
She created a series of Disney Princesses with very accurate costume changes based on her historical fashion knowledge. She reworked these designs in a new style according to various social periods.

She is currently working as an artist for Microsoft Game Studios Publishing. Which is your favourite?

Laura Varksy is an Argentinian illustrator. She was a teacher of mine when I was studying at the University of Buenos Aires. Her calligraphic work is absolutely beautiful and it has a particular style that is very recognizable. She started working in the music industry designing art covers for CD which took her to win a Latin Grammy for best packaging in 2006.
Four years after her graduation as a designer she rediscovered the world of illustration working for editorial projects, several labels and artistic projects.
Enjoy her work.

Oliver Jeffers is one of my favourite illustrators. He has such a lovely style, simple stories and gorgeous illustrations. I love these books and my son loves them as well.
Books like “Lost and Found”, “How to Catch a Star”, “The Way Back Home” are new classics of this era.
He has a new book out now called “This Moose Belong to Me”. Here is the trailer, which is lovely.
