Welcome to PICTURE PROMPTS! This is my way of 'paying it forward' for all the beautiful illustrations found in picture books all around the world. For the next year you will see me visit with guest illustrators, spotlighting their beautiful artwork and sharing their answers to a few questions I thought my readers might want to know about these illustrators. On the Friday when an illustrator hasn't stopped by for a visit and a hot cup of green tea, I will put up a random PICTURE PROMPT that has inspired me to write a little flash fiction to share with you!
If you are an illustrator, established or just starting out, and would like to participate in my PICTURE PROMPT series, just shoot me an email over to donasdays (at) gmail (dot) com and I will send you the information on how to join the fun!
Please welcome talented illustrator, Monica Rondino, and check out her answers to my interview questions...
Why did you decide to become an illustrator?
Yes I have another job or it would be better to say other jobs. For the moment I can’t live with the illustrator work so I do every kind of jobs I manage to find.
Monica is based in Rome, Italy and graduated with a language degree while also studying comics, illustration and animation. She and her partner Andrea work in 2D animation and flash animation for feature films, TV series, and commercials. Their illustration work ranges from children’s books to magazine and comic books. They work in both traditional and digital mediums.
