Fun Children's Book Illustrator with Animation Background

Hey there! My name is Leo Antolini; I´m an illustrator with a background in animation. I´ve worked at several animation studios as character designer, background artist, storyboard artist and even director! I have a BFA in Character Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA.


As somebody with a background in animation and cartoons, my art is wacky, colorful, fun and stylized. I can work in a variety of styles, but I naturally gravitate towards flat, graphic, retro design, bright colors and textures, and animated-type characters.

I LOVE children´s books, especially educational ones: I have a real passion for them, and I firmly believe they don´t have to be "boring looking" just because they´re educational!

Learning should be just as fun as any other activity.

It´d be amazing to be able to lend my talents to make an educational book into an attractive, colorful product that catches any kid's eye and engages him or her!

I´ve worked in a freelance capacity for clients such as Leapfrog and have done design and illustration work for them.

If you have any questions, please contact me at leantolini@yahoo.com.

Thank you!

I am a versatile designer. My style is childish. I like working with younger audiences and with great humor. I usually adapt my style to what the author desires.

I am extremely skilled with graphics programs like photoshop and illustrator.


I am Brazilian. My English is not perfect, and I use Google Translator as an assistant. But nothing is a barrier when you have creativity, a work ethic and devotion.

Whoever wants to work with me will not regret it. I guarantee it!

Illustrator and Cartoonist

Hi...I'm an illustrator and cartoonist with 24 years of experience.


I have proficiency in 3D StudioMax, Photoshop and CorelDraw. I do cartoon animation, art direction and final art, graphic design (watercolor, sketch, acrylic and charcoal) and silk-screen.

I started out quickly in the publication field, working with watercolors, gouache and realistic acrylic illustrations using various techniques.

I planned and did follow-up for a magazine's graphic art department. I also worked on folders, invitations, a newspaper and other layouts. I worked on preparing the advertising material for the same company too. (1987)

As a graphic arts designer, I developed several final artwork projects for booklets, newspapers, posters, book covers, product catalogues and packaging. I did various illustrations using human and animal drawings, all made by hand. I also prepared many icons and logos. I did some airbrush artworks too. (1991)

I drew a comic book manual for an ad campaign and used specific graphic arts software for making the final touches. I have done colored and black and white cartoons for in-house organs and several magazines. I created the logo based on the Quero-Quero bird (a Brazilian bird) for the Embraco Ecological Campaign Prize. I had the opportunity to be the Junior Art Director, preparing other advertising materials for direct mail, ads, booklets, banners, billboards, and character creation and illustrated children's inserts. (1997)

Presently working at my own studio, which is completely computerized, I create and develop characters and cartoons for publications.

I have my own style when I create my personal illustrations, but I can work in many others styles of drawing as well.

I love to feel free as a bird when I create my drawings. I love all styles...specially traditional, fine art and watercolor.

The price of my artworks are set because I work cheap. However, if the customer has real financial limitations, we can talk. I do nice work with responsibility and competence.

I can do some sketches to audition, so that the artwork be approved by the customer. I'm happy to do it because it means my work is already partly done.

During all my time working in agencies and publishing houses, I learned the meaning of cooperation. I always cooperate with the customer to produce work we're both happy with. I like to be a good partner.

Email me through my studio or personally.

Thanks

Paulo Sergio

Children's Book Illustrations from the Heart

Always at Dawn...

Always at Dawn...

Kaleidoscopius - Illustrations from the heart

My name is Roberta Cleontes, and I have been a teacher for almost 15 years, ranging from art, math to design basics in art, with related bachelor degrees. I consider myself very creative and possessed of a very strong, internal, child's soul.

I recently left teaching to pursue a career as a children's book illustrator and picture book artist. I just signed the contract for the first book I'll be illustrating.

I'm looking for authors who need illustrators who work from the heart. My work is strong and colorful. I use mediums ranging from watercolor, pastel, oil pastel to acrylics, and I enjoy collage, drawing, etc.

I don't have a specific fee, and I'm always willing to negotiate. I offer sketches and 2 to 3 samples in color.

Contact me at Childrens book illustration and art.
