My favorite illustrators # 1 Gemma Correll


As you maybe have stated, I started with the new year some new columns on this blog, which I'd like to establish as periodical fixed appointments. For the moment I began with a first column dedicated to wonderful places that I found here in Paris, while a second one is about timeless logos of vintage brands. Amongst these new initiatives, it was impossible for me to not include a further feature about my favorite illustrators: and the first one that I want to introduce is Gemma Correll... I discovered Gemma and her amazing illustrations some time ago, while I was browsing on the net, and since them I feel authentic love for her cute and funny style. In the pic above you can see one of her draw from her huge portfolio, in which it is also represented her main inspiring muse: Mr. Norman Pickle, a sweet pug who live with her and who is also a celebrity on the net thanks to his wonderful fan club's blog...
In order to show my love for Gemma's draws, I took decision to carve a rubber stamp using a draw of her pug (sometimes ago I've done a first attempt, but it was not totally satisfying for me) that you can see here below... it is a little thanks for Gemma for all times her draws made me smiling...
