Yuliya Pankratova Illustration

About me: 


I am a Moscow-born illustrator based in South-East London.

I have degrees in English Literature (University of Manchester) and Illustration (Camberwell College of Arts), as well as 5 years’ experience working in the advertising industry. I am SCBWI member and a graduate of the Picture Book course at City Lit.

My style is painterly, based in traditional media and often focusses on the natural world. I’m all about vibrant colours, tangible textures, brush strokes, drips and splashes.

What I do:

  • Write and illustrate children’s picture books
  • Illustrate and design posters, packaging and logos
  • Create bespoke animation assets
  • Illustrate storyboards
  • Create art for licensing
