Leila is visiting her cousin Raphaël in France!
But then she realises that not everyone in France speaks English!
Can she still have fun, and learn some French along the way?
Bláithín's second book for children serves as an excellent first introduction to French, inspiring a love for an interest in foreign languages. The pictures in the book are beautiful and unique, with both studio shots as well as some in-situe photography work done on site in the idyllic French countryside.
Release Date: September 2019
What even is Photographic Illustration?
I'm very glad that you asked! Photographic illustration is an art form that incorporates both Photography and Illustration. Characters in my books are drawn, painted and cut out by hand before being placed in studio or in-situe scenes, surrounded by teeny tiny furniture and objects to create a miniature world. Then it's lights, camera, action!
And Why Sushi???
Illustrator, designer, author... all of the above!
Hi! I'm Bláithín, lovely to meet you!
I'm the one who makes all the things you see above, and the one who spends her time carrying paper dolls and felt sushi around in her pockets to snap promo shots at every opportunity!
I;m currently studying French, Spanish and Italian, because besides doing art of all kinds, some of my other favourite things to do include traveling and talking :)
"Bláithín's style of illustration is stunning...Bláithín has an exceptional attention to detail and has built an intricate and an extremely attractive world for her readers as well as her characters....I can't wait to see what this remarkable artist and rising star creates next!"
