Time to grab the new signing bugle and give it a mighty proud blow, we’re delighted to announce that Tom Haugomat has signed with Handsome Frank.
Tom is a born and bred Parisian who resides in his home city. Having studied at the world famous Gobelins school of visual communication he initially embarked on a successful career in animated films but latterly his love for illustration developed.
Now an established illustrator, Tom’s striking signature style draws upon a strong sense for composition and an acute awareness of the power of negative space. Working with a stripped back colour palette he creates wonderfully atmospheric imagery, often brooding with tension or sprinkled with magic as the brief desires.
We’re delighted to have him on board and can’t wait to get working with him. You can his full profile here.
Daniela was very excited when she was asked to illustrate this series of covers for one of her favourite publishers, Virago. This trilogy by L. M. Montgomery form part of the Virago Modern Classics collection. We are thrilled that Daniela could fulfil one of her dreams to work on a Virago cover and has blown everyone away with these really special illustrations, already gaining praise from the Virago team themselves, “I’m completely enchanted by the covers, which feature beautiful illustrations by talented artist Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini.”
