Selma Mandine

Selma Mandine is a brilliant author and illustrator and I absolutely adore her work! She was born and grew up in Hong Kong, but now she lives and works in France. She has quite a few picture books published, the most popular being "Kiss Kiss"

I love her illustrations, because they are tasty!!! I don't know how to explain it, but although soft and pastel, they are still bright and vivid at the same time. Her drawings are like sweets! They somehow envelop you with warmth and intricate details. They make you feel cosy:)))

But enough talk! Just have a look yourself and let me know what you think!


  1. those are really good illustrations!
    do you know what sort of material she uses?!
    thank you for sharing

  2. I would say it is Photoshop, but I mught be wrong!

  3. Oh, I LOVE her! Thanks for the post, I haven't seen some of these illustrations yet. Annoyingly all of her pictures on web are tiny...

  4. Amazing! What a wonderful find, I can see why she would be inspiring. Adorable and unique!

  5. What a talent! Love her style! Thank you for turning me on to her work!

  6. Your style is very unique compared to other people I have read stuff from.
    Thanks for posting when you've got the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this web site.
