Valeria Petrone Recognized for New Children’s Title

Valeria Petrone is pleased to announce that her illustrations for “Abitare Sottosopra, un Parco di Notte” and “Tilda e la Luna” have received the ‘distinguished merit’ and ‘merit’ awards, respectively, from the 3×3 Magazine Picture Book Annual – wonderful!

Valeria’s strong graphic work appeals to adults and children alike, but there’s no ignoring the fact that the “cute factor” is totally maxed out in her adorable picturebooks.

Sometimes it’s best to let the art speak for itself….congratulations, Valeria!

Rosé all Day! New Design from Valeria Petrone

Who doesn’t love a glass of rosé once spring hits? Please take note: noone is raising their hands!

This latest project from Valeria Petrone is a real showstopper, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. Created for Tormaresca Vineyard in collaboration with animator Silvio Mancini (and art directed by Valeria), it is a thrill to see her illustration come to life.

“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!

It seems like everyone has been overtaken by soccer football fever, and we thought that it might be fun to compile some game-related imagery by a few MGI artists who are always on the ball (SORRY!).

So let’s get started, shall we?? It’s game time, and we’d like to present, in no particular order…
