Illustrator Feature: Victoria Riza

TAles from the Back Row printable posterWe are so thrilled to be featuring Victoria Riza as this month’s illustrator feature. Victoria was my intern many moons ago and it has been such a treat to see her setting out on her artistic path. I loved hearing her insights on how her upbringing and cultural background has influenced her path in the industry. From the get-go, Victoria has wanted to go into fashion illustration so I could think of no one better to illustrate our book of the month than her. If you’ve been reading this month’s book club pick, Tales from the Back Row, you’ve gotten a glimpse of that. Download this month’s book art illustrated by Victoria and take a look at her story, her favorite podcast, and advice on how to overcome setbacks. She’s also sharing the process she used to create the poster she created for us.Victoria Riza fashion illustrator

Illustrator Feature: Rosie Harbottle

Rosie Harbottle

It’s our favorite time of the month and we’ve revamped our Illustrator Feature with all new questions customized to each artist so we can get a better understanding of their unique stories. Rosie Harbottle, who created this month’s Book Club poster and bookmark, is UK based illustrator with a passion for travel and culture that’s clearly expressed through her art. She explains in this interview how her style finally found her as she “stopped painting what [she] thought clients wanted to see and started painting what felt natural.” Words to live by! Her work transports us to other countries and leaves us with a serious case of wanderlust! Rosie’s online shop opens this week so make sure to check out all her beautiful work!Rosie Harbottle

Chances are you’ll recognize her work, but if not, Lisa Congdon is a fine artist, illustrator, and designer you’ll want to get to know! I’ve been a fan of Lisa’s work for years. It’s bright, cheerful, and inspirational. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and she is the author of over 7 books! Her illustrations were featured in one of our last book club books, “Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History.” Getting a later start in the art world, Lisa is an amazing example of following your dreams and working hard for them. Make sure you download the book art she illustrated for us inspired by our very own “Craft the Rainbow!”

We hope you enjoy this inspiring look into Lisa Congdon’s creative process!

Recently some of her designs have been turned into the most gorgeous wallpapers that I am absolutely crazy for.
