What makes an illustrator’s work so creative and interesting is their unique and expressive style. It’s their ability to notice minute details and effortlessly weave them into their illustrations. Whether it’s producing creative visuals for publications, or sketching cartoons for advertisements, illustrators know how to tap into their creative eye, and let their work reflect their unique style of storytelling.
One such illustrator and character designer is Maria Malandrino, an illustrator and character designer from Turin, Italy. As a professional illustrator, Maria has created visuals for educational publications for almost 4 years now. She is an advanced level illustrator who has worked with the likes of Oxford University Press, Cengage, and Disney.
Maria believes that everyone has the ability to become an artist, and that you don’t need to go to art school to become a good illustrator. In fact, for Maria, the chance to become an illustrator came when she took up the MerMay challenge on Instagram – a social media art challenge that happens every year in May, where artists from all around the world draw different mermaid illustrations every single day, for the entire month.
Today, as a professional illustrator, Maria is well versed in cartoon designs, anatomy drawing, figure drawing, perspective drawing, and character drawing. What’s even better is that she is now opening her own academy, and launching her course Turn Your Loved One Into A Fairytale Character!
