Creative Collage Creatures

Among the talented artists I've had the pleasure to discover in recent months,
Andrea d'Aquino is one of my favorites. I really love the textures and organic feel
of her collage-illustrations, and her refined use of color, humor and whimsicality. 

D'Aquino is a new Yorker of Italian American descent who has been working 
for many years as a top level art director and more recently as an illustrator.
To learn more about her life, vision, work process and sources of inspiration 
I encourage you to read her interview on Pikaland, I found it very inspiring! 

A recent cover for Uppercase magazine 

Andrea's entry for the The New Yorker's Eustace Tilley contest was inspired
by d'Aquino's own pet schnauzer and the "off-leash hours” at Central Park.
 A very proud and noble dog indeed!
