Becoming a free-lance illustrator

My everyday essentials rounded up! Today on the blog, I wanted to talk to you about what it’s like to be a free-lance designer. I’m often asked about my life as an entrepreneur, and I wanted to take this occasion to give you some insight about my essentials. Of course, drawing is still an important part of my day, but as the owner of a small company, I have to multi-task more than you can imagine! After 11 years of running Liligraffiti (including 7 years dedicated to stationery), I think I finally have all the tools that make my life...

A getaway to London

A getaway to London

London is a cosmopolitan city, where many cultures meet, and where you have to go to enjoy a few days to appreciate all it has to offer! When I still lived in France (many years ago!), it was so easy to go there for a quick getaway: The Eurostar takes you there in a couple of hours. How nice it is to be a quick train-ride away to the heart of the busy London! More recently, I had the pleasure to go back there for a girl trip with my sister and my mom, for the birthday of the latter....

Behind the scenes: Our Pool design

Today we’ll take you on a little tour behind the scenes of Liligraffiti’s creations: we wanted to share with you the story of our “Pool” visual, a very special design for us, that symbolizes and incarnated the whole collection for us. This collection, as you already know, was born during the lockdown and the pandemic context: it was designed as an artistic response to the negativity, the loneliness, and the uncertainty all around us. The result was an overload of  bright and luminous colors, representations of people gathered again, a general feeling of joy that we can feel like a...

A getaway to San Francisco

San Francisco is one of those cities that you fall in love with instantly. I discovered it a few years back, during a family trip. I was supposed to went back there, on my own, last year for a business trip, but unfortunately the Covid situation stopped that project. So be it! I'll take today down memory lane in this magical city, that reminds me in lots of way (and especially the sweet way of life) my dear Montreal. The San Francisco vibe is quite different from all the other US cities that I've been to. More relaxed, more creative, more...
