Pictoplasma is a company that support contemporary character design and art and does it trhough events like exhibitions and publishing books like this encyclopedia.

Sally Mavor

I truly admire illustrators whose work is 3D Wether is sculpture to sewing skills, I quite admire the attention they pay to the details.  The way she handles her fabric creations are beautiful! I love to spend time looking at how she did every detail and boy the lettering she does is so mouthwatering!!! Once I'm settled in Mexico, I can't wait to include her books in my library.

Brandi Milne

When doing my Influence Map I couldn't believe I haven't shared one of my favorite, sweet and inspirational illustrator Brandi Milne (even her name sounds cool). I actually first saw her work at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA. She also visited my school to give a talk, and she's a really sweet, funny and charismatic person. Her illustrations really reflect the person she is. I love her style from how she draws her sweet characters from flora,fauna and humans, her color palette has a candy touch to it, and it almost feel as if she've been to candy land or wonderland!

Raquel Aparicio

I love Raquel Aparicio's illustrations I feel she uses negative space so well. She uses different media but I love the ink style it has and how simple she keeps her illustrations. They have a sense of it being suspended in time. Very cool. Go visit her website to see more awesome work @ http://www.raquelissima.com/
