At Casuaplay we are always very interested in the emerging illustrators of our country. After collaborating with Mr. Wonderful, Albert Arrayás, Agustina Guerrero and Lucreativo, it is now Anna Llenas’s turn.
Anna Llenas is one of the illustrators with very good prospects. She works in different fields: illustration of children’s books, books for adults and different objects, a wide range of things, which she enjoys doing, as she can use her creativity, and she would be very happy if there were more hours in a day so that she could accomplish everything that she likes so much.
Who is she?
Anna Llenas is a graduate of Autonomous University of Barcelona in Publicity and Public Relations and also in Graphic Design at the School Llotja. She also studied Analytical Psychology and has a master’s degree in Art Therapy.
During the first years she was working as a designer and art director at the Bassat Ogilvy&Mather and Publicis Casadevall&Pedreño agencies. But one day, she decided to leave the world of publicity and undertake her own path, something more artistic and personal. Since then, she designs original products, writes and illustrates books and gives classes of creativity and emotions.
Anna’s illustrations apply different techniques as for example photo-illustration or collage but always with some manual and spontaneous elements.
Anna emphasizes the power of the illustration and says that one must overcome the fear of taking a pencil and being creative.
In this blog we will focus on her children’s books and go over her latest titles.
