Change of Seasons

Illustration from Grandpa’s Favorite, by Erin Dealey (Kane Miller Books)

Luciana Navarro Powell never misses an opportunity to bring other cultures to her work. That’s partly because she is an immigrant, and partly because she considers showing diverse and inclusive viewpoints to be absolutely essential now, more than ever before.

Tired Children

Illustrations from My Dad is the Best Playground, by Luciana Navarro Powell (Random House)

In the beginning of her career, Luciana worked with watercolor and acrylic paints, but eventually settled with the digital brush. She loves the freedom that comes with digital art, and all the possibilities of experimentation with different textures. Nowadays, she works with mixed media. She still uses watercolor, but mixes it with photographs and scanned objects. This “melting digital pot” allows her to develop attractive, colorful, and fun illustrations.
