Who I am
My full name is Ligia Camolesi Guimarães, but you can call me Li if you want :)
Drawing and stories have always been a special part of my life, as when I was a child I already loved writing and illustrating my own little books by hand. Years have passed and I am still doing the same thing.
I work with traditional and digital techniques. My favorite area is children´s literature. I have illustrated more than fifteen books, including the Anne series, Heidi, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, and The Little Princess. Among my clients are the publishers Culturama, Novo Século, Vitrola, HarperCollins Brasil, Polo Books, Bambolê and Saíra editorial.
I love design and illustration because they give us the possibility to see worlds that previously only existed in our heads.
I graduated in design from ESPM-SP. and during the course I received the Emilie Chamie Award for my printed portfolio and by mine design graduation project. I also did a job of Scientific research about visual language in children´s book illustrations.
I worked for a year and eight months at WeCancer, creating all brand materials, and defining the company's branding and visual identity paths.
