Meet Alice Lotti and her wonderful animal illustrations
We’ve heard nice words about our set of wallpapers by Alice Lotti this week. We love them too! Who would not fall for these endearing animal illustrations? Alice likes to draw them much and dreams and to have so many of them. The variety of line works: dots, short strokes and continuous lines in Alice’s illustrations enriches the animals’ personalities and makes them have that nice, soft touch of humanization.
Hi Alice! Please tell us something about who you are and what you do.
I am an illustrator and graphic designer from Italy. I’m living in Turin and currently working in a creative advertising agency there. As an illustrator, I work in different sectors such as children’s books, advertising and publishing. My passion is drawing animals and sometimes I feel a bit like one of them.
Could you share some insights into your current illustration style?
I am always looking for new styles. I would like to experiment with new techniques, although recently I prefer working digitally because I can optimize my time, and it’s more current and still has a lot of potential.
Could you describe your illustrating process?
I always start doing drafts by pencil on paper so that I can figure out the space (on the screen it’s too difficult for me to see). After that I draw many small shapes that seemingly have no meaning, but those will become parts of the illustrations as I will compose digitally. I have a palette of colors that I generally use that reflects my imagination.
How do you think being featured on Kuvva platform will help you?
I think it’s a great opportunity to gain exposure for me. Kuvva is a channel to get my art where I would not be able to reach. I think it is an excellent platform, easy to explore, clear and funny.
And last but not least: do you have any future project in mind?
Yes! I have many plans for the future: I would like to learn crafts such as pottery or tailor, discover the potential of illustration applied to other creative fields. I would also like to have more free time to experiment and improve myself and also have a long journey before being thirty.
