Illustration from primary school educational book

Im Angela Sbandelli and Im so honored to be a featured artist on Thats My Folio!

I am an italian childrens book illustrator, i spent almost all my life “under the Tuscan sun “ and still living here.

After the accounting high school qualifications I radically changed my study path attending the Nemo Digital Art Academy in Florence, where I obtained a diploma in animation and I got a degree in Communication science at the University of Florence.

My career started as animator, the most important project I worked on is the animated tv serie Pipi Pupù and Rosmary for pre-school children.
Then I got closer to the world of illustration specializing in the childrens market, with my drawings appearing on educational books, magazines and ebooks for tablet.
My works are digital, but I always start with a paper and pencil, and sometimes, when I need a break from computer, I like to mix traditional techniques in my sketchbook.
By now I am working on a primary school educational book and completing my entry for The Sketchbook Project 2012 tour.
