“A World Conceived by Mistake” – Beautiful Personal Works from Valeria Petrone

It’s a joy to see what the MGI artists create when the “assignment” is nothing more than an exciting journey into their own imaginations.
Valeria Petrone is certainly no exception, and we were blown away by the suite of beautiful imagery she created for “A World Conceived by Mistake,” a surreal collection of stories written by her partner Umberto Sebastiano.
Taking place in a make believe universe, the collaboration takes on a surreal feel. You can take a look at this gorgeous suite of imagery here – and congratulations to Valeria and Umberto!

The Children’s Book Council Honors Simona Mulazzani

The Children’s Book Council, one of North America’s foremost supporters of children’s literature and reading, recently honored “Rock-A-Bye Romp,” a darling play on the famous lullaby, written by Linda Ashman and illustrated by our own Simona Mulazzani.

Their “Hot off the Press” list, which features anticipated bestsellers, is a unique and impressive collection of fun titles, and we couldn’t be happier to see Simona in such nice company.
