Most people have come across the intriguing work of Florentine Illustrator Sarah Fanelli. With an impressive list of inspiring children’s book illustration under her belt, Sarah has also worked with clients including The New Yorker, Faber and Faber, The Tate Modern and Tate Britain, The V&A and other prestigious clients including designer Issey Miyaki. After graduating from the RCA 1995 Sarah has lived and worked as a freelance designer in London, splitting her time between self generated work and books, and commercial illustration commissions. One of her prestigious commissions was for The Tate Modern. Sarah was asked to design a 40m long Timeline, and Gallery entrances for the Tate’s Permanent Collection. Patternbank loves Sarah’s surreal mix of photographic collage and paint, and her use of colour blocking with sensitive hand illustrations and graphics. See more of her work here.
