Anna Desnitskaya
Around the World in 24 Farmers' Markets

Children's Publishing

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I started to think about making a book about markets in 2018: we moved to Montenegro with my husband and kids for three months. Every week I went to a small local market in the very beautiful city of Herceg Novi, bought some fruits, vegetables and fish and drew a few sketches. I loved it and thought that it would be interesting to make a book about markets all around the world.

How was the illustration used:
These are illustrations to the children book about farmers' markets around the world - about different countries, different cultures, different people and of course different food.

How did you make this work:
it's a mixed technique - first I drew contours by hand and after I colored illustrations in photoshop.

I was born in Moscow and still lives there with my husband and three children. In 2011 I graduated from the Moscow State University of Printing arts and since then works mainly as an illustrator of books for children, non-fiction in particular. What inspires me is the daily life itself with all its complexity and diversity which I aim to reflect in the books I illustrate.
