Eleonora Arroyo

Les Précieuses Ridicules

Argentinan artist/illustrator Eleonora Arroyo has one of the nicest websites I've ever come across. Her portfolio of published and unpublished works is full of colourful treasures, just waiting for you to explore.

I love everything about this Buenos Aires-based artist's illustrations. I love her use of colour and the playful, theatrical nature of her collages and compositions. She makes me smile and I'm sure that her children's books are magical.

Todo en Tren - available here

If I had to choose a favourite piece of work it would be her little theatres. Aren't they beautiful? Eleonora has made lots of them, which you can see on her blog.

Waiting For Godot


Why don't you have a go at making some with your children or students? Choose a favourite story, nursery rhyme or play and let their imagination do the rest. I'm sure Eleonora would love to see some photos... Enjoy!
