The joyful illustrator

  • • Laura illustrates an imaginary world between dream and reality
  • • She uses digital tools but the final result is like a traditional painting
  • • She’s been strongly influenced by the works of Henri Rousseau

Welcome to the world of Laura Lhuillier, a former graphic designer who turned to illustration in search of creative freedom. It’s a world somewhere between dream and reality, full of colours and joy, populated by wild animals, luxuriant plants and happy people. Laura's illustrations for editorial and commercial clients don’t tell a story, but communicate a feeling of tenderness, sincerity and serenity. The illustrator seeks to share her good mood and legendary optimism with other people. Her studio is based in Lyon, but her inspiration is pretty exotic. Her drawings allow her mind to travel to faraway lands with landscapes that are very different to those of her homeland.

Tout le monde peut méditer

Cover illustration for Coelia Pelletier's book Tout le monde peut méditer published by Hachette. As the book is about getting rid of stress and achieving happiness through meditation, Lhuillier created a light-hearted scene of people practising yoga among flowers and clouds. The colour palette is soft, dominated by the light blue background.

Atelier d’artiste

This illustration is almost autobiographical, as it represents a woman artist in her studio, painting a wild, colourful tiger. The work is made with Procreate and Photoshop digital tools, but the final effect is very close to a watercolour made with traditional techniques.

The lazy tiger

This digital illustration shows a lazy tiger resting on a tree. Lhuillier’s signature is highly recognizable: the colour palette is vivid and vibrant, the subject is somewhere between dreams and reality. The animal is represented like a human being, with a peaceful, happy smile on its face.

Time to pawty

This digital illustration made with Procreate and Photoshop tools, shows a girl in the act of cuddling a very tall dog. They are both ready to party: the girl is wearing her best dress, bright yellow with pink bowler hat and boots. The dog sports a funny festive hat. The colour palette is pastel-dominated and illuminated by the yellow details.

Up in the clouds

A cute lovers scene of a couple flying in a pink airship decorated with flowers, looking at the fairytale landscape all around: blue sky, tall green trees, mountains in the background and even a rainbow.
