Julianna Brion and I both live in Baltimore, Maryland, and I recently had the pleasure of visiting her studio space. Julianna creates illustrations for a myriad of clients, but also manipulates awesome old books (think textbooks) with painting and collages.
It is in these books that she can experiment with imagery or technique. While they are important to her, they aren’t overly precious and she’s able to unwind creatively and not worry about the consequences. As a result, she’s created some great spreads.
