Fri-llustrator-day #42

Illustration for Adidas by Olimpia Zagnoli, winner of the Adidas 'Celebrate Originality' campaign 2009.

This week’s Fri-llustrator-Day features a new discovery for me, thanks to a previous Fri-llustrator, Frank Chimero. While reading Mr C’s tweets last night, I followed a link he posted to Milan-based Olimpia Zagnoli. He mentioned the beautiful drawings she had on her site – intrigued, I popped over for a look.

Illustration for New York Book Review by Olimpia Zagnoli.

Wow – instead of the sketches I had in my minds eye, I came across the wonderful stylish images that she’s created for a wide range of clients including The New Yorker, The New York Times, Grazia and Nike. And last year she won the Celebrate Originality Award (see top illo) from Adidas as part of their campaign to, well, celebrate originality (and to sell shoes).

If you want to see more of her lovely illustrations, start your weekend with a smile and visit the Olimpia Zagnoli site. Bello lavoro, Olimpia!
