I’m honored to be the IlloStories ‘ArtistWeLove’ for September!

IlloStories is a collaboration of artists Deborah Stein (Bonbon Oiseau) and Erica Root. They publish a monthly workbook for illustrators and artists – filled with themes around children’s books illustration with weekly prompts, and followed by an active online community. Their workbooks are pure inspiration, so I was more than happy when they asked me to contribute something!


This Friday, September 20 at 6pm GMT+1/ 12pm EST, I’m joining Deb in a Facebook Live event ! She says: “We will be discussing all kinds things ranging from how Maria’s fine arts background informs her illustration work, pointers for making great compositions and other technical stuff, and also get into our ideas about work/life balance and formulas to conquer getting sidetracked. We'll think about the importance of mentors and the business of becoming a working illustrator! We'll follow with a Q & A!”

When I was writing my contribution for the IlloStories workbook, I realized how prevalent the combination of opposites is to my work, be it that I combine different cultures within me, that I work in a range of mediums, or that I go between analog and digital media, between art and craft, etc. All those elements create a unique ‘Maria’ style and body of work. So, I created a guide and set of handy tools to use in your illustration.
