Who I am

My full name is Ligia Camolesi Guimarães, but you can call me Li if you want so :)   

 

Drawing and storytelling have always been a special part of my life, as when I was a child I loved writing and illustrating my own booklets by hand. Years have passed and I'm still doing the same thing.  

My specialty are traditional techniques (watercolorcolored pencils , pastels , collage , among others), but I also work with digital .

The area I like the most is literature, especially for children and young people.  

 

I currently live in São Paulo (Brazil) and have illustrated three published books, as well as a series of covers for a Jane Austen book collection, which will be released by Novo Século publisher.  


 

I love design and illustration because they give us the possibility to see worlds that previously only existed in our heads. I also love poetry (by the way, my favorite writer is Fernando Pessoa) and I love playing with words the same way I play with images.

I graduated in design from ESPM-SP. and during the course I received the Emilie Chamie Award for my print portfolio and my graduation project in design.  I also did  a Scientific Initiation work  about visual language in children's book illustrations. This research earned a certificate of prominence at the ESPM Student Show.  

 

I worked for a year and eight months at  WeCancer, creating all brand materials, defining the company's branding and visual identity paths.

Let's talk?
