Friday Favorites #6


Tressa over at Tressa’s Wishful Endings
hosts this meme, Friday Favorites.  I use this opportunity to highlight and feature some of my favorite illustrators.

This week I am spotlighting one of my new discoveries.  Nicoletta Costa!  She has illustrated some of my kids’ favorite books and I love her simple, adorable style.  I don’t have a bio for her because her website is all in Italian (I think), and I just had to click around without knowing what I was looking at. 

I love the way she can take a few simple lines and give them so much expression.

I discovered Nicoletta Costa when I started reviewing children’s ebooks for Kite Readers.  She has illustrated quite a few of their classic stories and my kids just love her artwork.  Her style is so sweet and calming.  It’s perfect for picture books!

      Hmmm, I don't know if she's worked on any kid's shows. If I could have found some info in English, maybe I would know more! 🙂
