Melissa Castrillon

I found me another wonderful set of illustrations I’d like to share with you today! These gorgeous works are by Cambridge (UK) based illustrator Melissa Castrillon. Melissa earned a First class Honors Degree in Illustration and gained a Masters degree in Children’s book Illustration at the Cambridge school of art in 2014. She currently works as a freelance illustrator and is creating her first picture books for Simon & Schuster (New York) and Topipittori (Italy). For many more works and info you can follow Melissa on FacebookFlickr, Twitter & her Blog, buy her work at her online shop of visit her website here.

The first five illustrations below are from a 12-page book Melissa produced during her final BA year at the Cambridge school of art. They tell a true story about a sad woman in the late 19th century who threw herself off a bridge. But her dress inflated during the fall, causing her to land in the water safely. She lived till the age of 84.
