Here's our fourth CREATIVE CAPSULE.This month, we invite you to meet Ëlodie, parisian and talented illustrator. Enjoy it!

Describe your creative lab in a few words?
I live and work in my tiny (but attractive) Parisian apartment. I adore it for the luminosity which is ideal to draw. In a corner of the apartment, I settled my illustrations to create a set which serves me when I photograph my creations. And otherwise of my window I can perceive the beautiful Parisian roofs, I love it!

In two sentences, how would you describe your work technique?
Before I drew exclusively in the very fine felt-tip in dotted line, but this technique was long and boring. Since I prefer to draw in the pencil of paper then to colorize on Photoshop. I adore the grain of the pencil of paper which gives a warm and authentic effect to the final illustration. I also scan many textures: papers, paints which I assemble afterward in my illustrations.

What is the project of which you are most proud of?
I adored illustrating for the collaboration's communication between Nina Ricci and Ladurée: 2 brands that I adore.

What are your favourite colors to create?
Rose, red, purple, white.

Why did you become an artist?
I do not consider myself as an artist but rather as a creator who needs to touch everything and to create and that since my earliest childhood. I became an illustrator, but I am interested in other creative domains such as photo.

In four words, how would you describe your style of illustration?
Feminine, delicate, poetic, vintage (and sometimes playful)

What is the project of your dreams?
To illustrate for beautiful Parisian brands : Dior, Chanel, Diptyque

What does a typical day in the life of Ëlodie looks like?
In the morning I take advantage to have all my concentration to sort out my e-mails, look after my websites and / or my communication. The afternoon is only dedicated to the creation of new illustrations.

What inspires you?
60's, Paris, fashion, sea.

What is your favourite blog or website?
I am a fan of the universe of the blogger Daphné of modeandthecity.net for her preppy look and her lifestyle photos.
