Kendra Scott Interviews La Scarlatte

Meet Our Illustrator: La Scarlatte

A freelance illustrator based out of Amsterdam, Netherlands, La Scarlatte first caught our eye for her delicate attention to detail and playful use of color. But when we asked her a few questions about her life and artistic process, we really fell in love. Read on to learn why we’re so inspired by the rockstar artist behind our Summer ’17 illustrations!

What does your creative process look like?

When I’m creating personal work, an artwork can be thoroughly researched and extensively sketched out before I start on a final artwork, but it can also develop naturally without any preparation. With clients, I always work on a concept and create sketches first, and then create the final artwork. Most of the time I create the artwork as one drawing, then scan it in and color it digitally. But for Kendra Scott, I created every item separately.

What about Kendra Scott’s Summer 2017 Collection inspired your illustrations?

This summer collection has a really great sea and coral vibe, so I paid a visit to the aquarium and tried to find corals, animals, and seaweed that had a similar texture as the jewelry. Kendra Scott already had this beautiful color palette for the items in the collection, and I added a few colors to complement them.

Dinara Mirtalipova : Easter Eggs

For: Dinara Mirtalipova

Culture Trip just wrote a beautiful article about Dinara Mirtalipova's Easter eggs. 

Here's a quick snippet of the article

Culture Trip: When did you start painting eggs?

Dinara Mirtalipova: Painting eggs for Easter is a family tradition, started by my grandma Lilia. She celebrated Easter and baked Easter bread called kulich (кулич). As a child I loved to watch her doing it and I loved to help with dying eggs. After she passed away, I continued to decorate eggs for Easter year after year and now it’s become my tradition.

CT: Do particular places inspire your work?

DM: I know it sounds too obvious, but inspiration hides everywhere. I love taking nature walks with my daughter, I love listening to ethnic music, taking trips to museums or libraries, I love collecting fabric, ethnic dolls and coins. So it’s hard to name one destination, I think it depends on what you’re looking for.

Red Nose Studio: 2017 WSRA Children & 2017 Maryland Blue Crab Book Awards for "the secret subway"


For: The Secret Subway

The following Random House Children’s Books have been nominated to the 2017 WSRA Children's Book Awards:
THE SECRET SUBWAY by Shana Corey; illustrated by Red Nose Studio
The WSRA Children's Literature Committee members dedicate themselves to reading widely in order to evaluate the newest books published each year. This is done to recommend the most interesting and valuable books for educators and children to read. The committee considers titles based on the quality of the literature, the appeal for students, and the value for classroom use. The committee creates two lists to help educators select titles for use in their specific areas. The "Just One More Page" list highlights the committee's recommendations for the best of the newest chapter books through eighth grade, while "Picture This" highlights the recommendations for the best of the newest picture books.

THE SECRET SUBWAY has also been named a Transitional Nonfiction Honor Book for the 2017 Maryland Blue Crab Book Awards!
The Maryland Blue Crab Young Reader Award was created in 2004 in an attempt to stimulate interest in books for the beginning reader and the emergent independent reader. At that time, there were few books produced in this niche, and it was hoped that an award that could garner national attention would encourage authors, illustrators and publishers to produce better quality books in this niche


Congrats Red Nose Studio!
