Aduna and Yara Kono Illustration and Colour
Well I wandered into Chorlton and smack bang in the window of the local Holland and Barrett there’s my packaging shouting out for all it’s worth lol.
The company are going from strength to strength after becoming runners up in the Virgin ‘Pitch to Rich’ competition and landing themselves a cool £100,000 which is being channelled into their Make Baobab Famous campaign. Apparently close sources tell me that the bars were larging it up backstage at the Oscars recently so they’re certainly on their way.
Since Working on the Baobab packaging, I also created the Moringa one too, and now they have Super Cacao.. whatever next! Well done guys, keep up the great work.
This next artist I discovered when in Lisbon, yet Yara Kono was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1972. She started making her first drawings on the wall of the sitting room. Her mother, who at first was not too pleased, finally gave in to the “artistic talents” of her daughter. From wall to paper, from paper to the computer the years have gone by. Since 2004 she has been part of the Planeta Tangerina team.
Yara has illustrated many books.
I like her style and the way that she creates her animal shapes.
There’s also a softer pencil style to her imagery.
Great work, will keep an eye out for more developments with Yara’s work. More photographs on her Instagram page.
