Inspired by hands-on printing techniques and the things she collects, such as children's books and collectible toys, VIRGINIE MORGAND uses hand drawn shapes and bright colours to create vibrant images full of life and energy. Based in Paris, Virginie's background is in animation but, having learnt how to screen print at L'atelier Dupont, she has developed her own visual language as an illustrator working to brief for a growing number of clients. Recent projects include campaigns for Le Meridien, illustrations for The Sunday Times, Elle magazine, Barneys in New York, and front covers for Ballroom Review, The Parisianer and Erratum.
Every day children watch parents head out of the door for the day to go to work. This eye-catching book shows them just what the grown-ups might be doing, illustrating fourteen different workplaces across stylish expansive pages. It starts with the familiar – what grown-ups do at school – then goes on to look at construction sites, hospitals, the farm, shops and more. There’s lots to look at in every spread and each of the grow-ups readers meet are then illustrated on the following page, with short sentences to explain what they do. A handsome book that provides lots of information and lots for children to talk about. ~ Andrea Reece
