It’s hard not to fall in love with the work of French illustrator Rebecca Dautremer; Her picture books are like stepping into magical worlds filled with charming characters. With warm color palettes, subtle textures, and unexpected compositions, she tells her fairy-tale & folklore inspired stories with a surprising twist & a touch of humor, making them extraordinary stories for children and adults alike.
She often collaborates with her husband, French children’s book author Taï-Marc Le Thanh, and has also worked on a few animated projects. Stop by her website to see more her beautiful work!
Searching for new talent I was astounded to be recommended the work of Foxy Artisan. After contacting the artist, she was delighted to send me some examples of her work and tell me all about her personal inspirations and artists influences:
‘A lot of my work is based on Fandoms. My favourite tv shows or movies/celebrities and the like. I do a lot from Vikings, Avengers, Supernatural and Constantine. I just feel that Fanart is a great way to express a love for a particular show, and at the same time there is a lot of people out there on Tumblr etc that have an equally enthusiastic interest as me
As for artists I admire, some would have to be William Blake, Albrecht Durer and Thomas Moran. Their style of painting is so beautiful! And mainly consisted of watercolours; which I feel as though I work best with. The natural flow of the water is something I like to try and work into my pieces as best I can.’
Personally I was completely in awe over the sheer detail included in each piece. The artist has a clear amount of passion which is admirable along with a natural talent which cannot be ignored.
Thanks for reading,
