Lorena Siminovich Studio
Centre Pompidou

More Paris book spotting! I always find one of the best selections of children’s books in the museum shop of the Centre Pompidou. So I headed over there for some inspiration, and Voilá I found our dear “in my” series developed by my darling friend Sara and illustrated by moi. They even had the just released Jungle and Ocean. Très Bonne!

I Like Bugs by Lorena Siminovich in French!
I Like Bugs in Paris

Last week I had an amazing day visiting the “Salon du Livre” (Book Fair) in Paris. Unlike book fairs in America, this was open to the public! Flocks of families and kids were reading in every nook and buying their favorite books. Not only I was so terribly inspired by what I saw, I was also thrilled to spot my “Ilike Bugs” book, in french, published by amazing Albin Michel.

Little Big Magazine Interview

The nice people over at UK magazine Little Big just interviewed me and said all kinds of good things about me that made my day.

Collage Queen: Lorena Siminovich
ARTIST Lorena Siminovich has made quite an impact upon the graphic design for children we see around us today.

We are now so used to seeing collage mixed with illlustration, it’s easy to forget Lorena’s influence on the style. Her petit collage brand has spawned a number of copycats, but the San Francisco-based Lorena is not a one-trick pony. Her wooden cutout mobiles, new decals (elephant pictured below), and in particular her growing range of book titles – including her Petit Collage touch and feel baby board books for Templar (in the UK) and her series of story books featuring the characters Alex & Lulu, mark her out as a special talent.

Crafting a Meaningful Home
Crafting a Meaningful Home

I was happy to hear from my dear friend Meg Mateo Ilasco, and got invited to be a part of her awesome latest book “Crafting a meaningful home”
Even more fun was to have the talented Thayer Allison Gowdy come to my house to take the photos and later on to shoot a fun little video to promote the book.
I made a special collage for the book, dedicated to my daughter and inspired by my love for far away places.
The book is chockfull of interesting projects for the DIY inclined.
The video is really cheery and makes me feel a bit like a rockstar.
