    Alessandra Genualdo: Il Signor Noto (detail)

Illustration: Cool little characters from Alessandra Genualdo

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Italian-born London-based illustrator Alessandra Genualdo creates characters and scenes with just the right amount of weird to haul us over, googly eyed and inquisitive as we are. Her work for for small publications and exhibitions combines gouache with collage to create a strangely surreal mixture of textures and solid blocks of colour. As a result, her images transcend their prescribed two-dimensionality; the jumpers look itchy, the books wordy and the hairdos substantial, which only goes to prove my point – It might well be weird, but it’s right up our street.
