Do you like children’s books? Well of course you do, silly me… The illustrator behind this beautiful project is Gemma Román. This young illustrator & designer from Mexico will dazzle you with her talent. Cover design she created is actually for a set of books for the French publisher, Fleurus Editions. These four colorful art pieces encompass anthologies of children’s stories, poems and songs. Every single one of them a great representative of Gemma’s unique style. She created these digitally believe it or not. However, her ability to tell a story with a stroke of a pen will bring you right back to your childhood.
It’s always hard for me to describe myself or my art but I guess my illustrations tend to be very colorful with a pinch of retro.
I was approached by a french publisher Fleurus Editions, to create the covers for a series of anthologies of children’s stories, poems and songs. The interiors are illustrated collectively and I got to illustrate a few stories and songs too. I was inspired by classic tales and the colorful nature.
I illustrated these covers and created the titles on Photoshop with a handmade touch. It was easier for me to work this way, so I could play with colors and shapes and pick the best options for each book and make them different from each other while looking like a family together. The aim was to make very colorful covers that could be appealing for kids of different ages, and encourage a love of reading.
I’m working on more illustrated books, and other fun projects that I can’t wait to share.
