Guys, this year was a pretty tough one, but a very exciting one, too! For all of you out there who are not really sure if you should try to make your passion your job: go for it. It's a rocky road with many ups and downs, but you will get there! 2018 will start with a few great commissions for amazing german publishers and I couldn't be happier! I've achieved my task for 2017 just in time and it makes me so unbelievably happy! I remember people (even very close ones like family members) telling me that illustrating children's books would not work out as a job. I was around 19 years old by then and was not really sure whom I should believe. So I simply kept studying graphic design and never really illustrated any children's books at the time. I began to pick up that path AFTER my time at the university thanks to a great friend who is also an illustrator ( #joelletourlonias). She showed me around in this beautiful world of children's books! And I began to realize (again) that this is the only thing I want to do for a living!!! Never let anyone EVER fall off your path. Fight for your dreams, work hard for it and you will get there!!! Thanks for all the likes and comments on my illustrations this year! 2017 was a blast!! 2018 will be even better! #bestnine2017
Da cosa nasce cosa ✨ Sono ancora travolta dal vortice che per me è stato questo 2017. Vedo la fine di un percorso che mi ha condotto per strade che mai avrei immaginato, ad attraversare difficoltà che mi hanno quasi sovrastata, vedo i pezzi di un puzzle di cui non capivo il senso pian piano andare ciascuno al proprio posto. Gli ultimi giorni dell'anno inevitabilmente ti portano a tirare le somme di ciò che è stato e io mi rendo conto che quest'anno pazzescamente difficile è stato anche pazzescamente bello perchè mi ha permesso di fare chiarezza, di togliere il superfluo, di lasciar andare ciò che non valeva, di fare pulizia laddove c'era bisogno, di mettere a fuoco la strada, la mia strada, chiamiamola Vocazione, perchè in fondo questo è. Magari nei prossimi giorni riuscirò a mettere insieme un discorso che abbia un senso, senza lasciarmi trasportare dalle emozioni del momento, e nel caso aggiornerò il blog. Per stasera mi lascio trasportare dalle cose belle che hanno illuminato i miei ultimi mesi, dopo parecchio buio: incontri importanti, parole di incoraggiamento, sentire che in fondo.. Ce la posso fare! Ce la metto tutta, continuo a ballare, a fare magie, a pattinare, cadere e rialzarmi, con le mie bacchette magiche in mano: matite, colori.. Ispirazione. Proprio questa parola che ha fatto nascere questa illustrazione, un mese fa, durante un incontro di un corso con Morena ( @robadadisegnatori), altro punto di luce in questo anno. So che il caso non esiste, perciò non è stato un caso che ha fatto sì che Morena mi affidasse questa parola quella sera. Il caso non esiste e oggi danzo un po' anch'io, pronta a danzare per il prossimo anno che verrà, con un po' di luce e consapevolezza in più. Da cosa nasce cosa, non vedo l'ora che nasca tanto tanto tanto ancora! 💛 . . . . . . . . . . . . #laughlau #laughlau_illustration #magic #illo #christmasillustration #fairy #thankful #illustration #aduntratto #moreillustrations #creativelabmagazine #percorsicreativi #christmas #christmasiscoming #creativehappylife #drawingart #illustrationoftheday #illustration_best #abmlifeiscolorful #xmas #natale2017 #mgbrushes #picame

Today I had the courage to watch "A Street Cat Named Bob". I have never had the courage because I'm very sensitive, and those who know me know how much I can burst into tears when I see an abandoned kitten. But today I armed myself with courage and I watched it, needless to say that I cried a lot for this pure love that is created between the two characters. I have a cat. Since just over a year. She came as an unexpected storm and amid health problems and a lot of confusion, she stole my heart. It's called Belle, or "piniwini" for me. And so I begun watching the movie, that I felt it mine right from the start. Animals give a pure and one-way love without asking anything in return, if they don't receive the same love. I could never think of a life without her. I play hide and seek and look at me while drawing. Occasionally I approach her face and she returns with a wet kiss. Theres no love bigger, sweeter, more sincere. Once I read: If at our marriages man and woman exchange the promises of "Until death do us part", I'm sure between man and animal should add "And even beyond". And for me, there's nothing truer than this. #cat #animal #truelove #selfportrait #me #myself #love #colorpalette #sketch #illustration #illustrator #girl #digitalart #digitalpainting #photoshop #mgbrushes #postoftheday #artoftheday #illustrationoftheday #instaart #instaartist #instaillustration #artoninstagram #artistoninstagram #illustratoroninstagram #picoftheday #bestfriend

Today starts @beatrice.blue 's childhood week (second edition)!! Sadly, I can't join the full week because I have tons of work to do (even during the weekend, yes :_D) but the first topic just melted my heart: cartoons and movies. . . . Please let me know if you remember The Moomins!! It was a TV series based on finnish legends and tales. The Moomins were kind of cute and handsome trolls who lived in Moomin Valley, full of fantastic creatures... Some of them very creepy, like The Groke, a monster that appears on winter and frozen everything around her (she wasn't bad, though. Only weird lol). I loved this series so much, but I can tell you guys that the Groke's still scarying me 😅 hope you like it!!. . . . #childhoodweek #childhoodweek2017 #90's #90sTVseries #moomin #TheMoomins #thegroke #digitalillustration #digitalart #illustrationartists #illustration_best #trafficonthemoon #fairyandfolks #mgbrushes #artistsoninstagram #childrenillustration #childrenswritersguild #artguide_illustration

Time to do some #Characterdesignchallenge !! This month's topic is Burlesque 😍 meet Madame Armande, and old character I drew some years ago for a class practice. She is an old star, currently retired, and nowadays she leads the cabaret dancers and manages the show (that's why she wears the backstage's robe). But from tome to time she likes jumping up to the scene at the end of the show, just for the fans greetings. Hope you like it!!! . . . . #CDC #characterdesign #burlesque #cabaret #digitalillustration #illustration #stage #oldstar #Cabaretdancer #burlesquedancer #trafficonthemoon #moreillustrations #illustration_best #digitalart #mgbrushes #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #artguide_illustration

Hi guys! Unfortunately I'm not yet at my full strength, but I will do my best to heal! This is a small (really small) gift drawing for all of you. During the past few days, I have been invaded by messages, comforting words and prompt healing wishes! Sweet words, full of compliments and love. And I really, really didn't think that a small girl like me could happen to have so many beautiful people. I now recognize many of you, both from the name and from the photo. And with most of you I talk like a friend. I read all of your messages and always try to reply quickly to your questions or even to just say thank you. All the 25k and beyond of you are in my heart. And I'm sure my heart will have to prepare to welcome more people. Thanks for the support, thank you because I would have never imagined this, and you're all doing this all by yourself. I'm just a little girl who draws with all the love of the world, and all the love of the world receives every day from you all 💚 Thank you! #thankyou #25k #gift #illustrator #illustration #selfportrait #heart #loveyou #colorpalette #digitalart #digitalpainting #photoshop #postoftheday #artoftheday #illustrationoftheday #instaart #instaartist #instaillustration #artoninstagram #artistoninstagram #illustratoroninstagram #foryou #curlyhair #artist #art #mgbrushes

today I bought the new #gouache and #pastel #brushes set by #mgbrushes and I played a bit with it! 2 hours practice cause it's been a long time since I drew something digitally featuring my oc ✨ Highly recommend these brushes if you're looking for some nice textures, swipe to see them closer in all their glory, even tho my style may not be really suited for them but it was a very interesting experience! I already have some favourite ones that I'm going to mix with my usual tools in future #illustrations eheh 👀💕

👄 @pieles_lapelicula de @eduardocasanova es una de mis películas favoritas de estos tiempos. Tan brutalmente sincera, consigue que veamos belleza y normalidad donde nos han enseñado que no la hay, haciéndonos sentir tan estúpidos como maravillados por tanta elegancia.👄 . #pieles #eduardocasanova #laura
I am absolutely excited to working on a illustrated “Les Miserables” edition. Take a first look to Jean Valjean and Javert. 🇫🇷❤️ . . #illustration #jeanvaljean #lesmiserables #davideortu
Repost from @laura_illustrator We are beautiful. I want to start this little talk just like this, because we are all beautiful. That's a fact for me, it's not a compliment. I have spent many years of my adolescence thinking the opposite, all those ugly words, all those looks of disgust, all that I never feel enough. It hurts. Above all, it is bad if you already have little self-esteem. I don't say that everyone is bad, but the words have to be chosen well. One has to think before saying, and only say when you are sure to speak well. All our peculiarities, our "faults" make us special, and I understand it after being burned and trampled a bit. I love my fluffy hair, I love my wide hips and so on. I just wish that no-one felt less than someone else. Because we are so perfect. And the eyes that see only the pre-packaged beauty of Instagram, Facebook, TV etc...will never understand that true beauty is more. Be proud of you, smile, you are so beautiful. #illustration #girl #beauty #proud #wearebeautiful #illustrator #digitalart #digitalpainting #photoshop #colorpalette #postoftheday #artoftheday #illustrationoftheday #instaart #instaartist #instaillustration #artoninstagram #artistoninstagram #illustratoroninstagram #mgbrushes
