Artist Feature - Smiljana Coh May 03 2018Latest signings
We are so happy to announce that we have recently signed fabulous children's book illustrator Smiljana Coh, who has worked on some very exciting projects over the last year. She was recommended to join us by Dubravka Kolanovik who we have been looking after since 2013. Smiljana's print and painterly style makes her a great illustrator for children's publishing, especially for children ages 0-5! We are so excited to be working with this incredible book illustrator and can't wait to see what book projects you have in mind for her. Be sure to check out more of Smiljana's beautiful illustrations at her online Advocate Art portfolio!
“I was born in Croatia and I started illustrating while I was studying film animation at the Department for Animated Film and New Media of the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. I grew up in Varazdin and I still live here with my husband and our three children.
I LOVE children's books. My favourite picture book from the time I was a child is "The Mitten". My favourite novel is "Sophie's World". I also like beautiful board games and vintage children's books. My client list includes The Art File, Bloomsbury, Running Press, Carlton, Blue Apple Books, Tiger Tales, Miles Kelly, Random House, Egmont, Hinkler, Faber and Sky Pony Press. I've been working on illustrations for a trilogy written by Julian Lennon with Bart Davis. "Touch the Earth" was a New York Times bestseller and it got excellent reviews. The second book "Heal the Earth" got released in April 2018.”
