Hi I am Mylène and this is my world, thank you for checking it out!
Illustration is what I do and love. My story as an artist started with my grandfather's passion for art and books so, I am a nerd but also an entrepreneur.
My background is in communications and graphic design, an atypical career path that gave me an opportunity to learn animation and become well versed in design thinking. This means that beyond being an artist who can take creative risks, I am also a strategic thinker looking to tap into the storytelling potential of projects to enhance meaning and value.
Why illustration? Because it allows me to explore and share my inner vision. My job is about listening and understanding stories to create artworks that have the power to awake emotions and make deep connections.
I am mostly commissioned for:
- Editorial illustrations (for children's books in particular)
- Storyboard illustrations and motion design
- Advertising and branding related projects
Key facts about me:
Based in London UK
Minimalist and quirky line style with touches of colour to enhance meaning in details.
Active member of the AOI (Association of Illustrators in the UK)
Native French & Spanish speaker (Half French - Half Mexican - raised in Mexico City)
Master of Arts, Creative & Cultural Entrepreneurship, Goldsmiths University of London
What people say
Chasity Nao, Start-Up Relations Manager at
The Friday Club London
I've worked with Mylene on several projects and I have been nothing but happy and impressed by her Work.
She always exceeds our expectations. She is creative, a visionary, and she possesses the inept ability to interpret even the most complex briefs. She is deadline oriented, and always shares her progress to ensure that her work meets the criteria of the project. Her strong suite is illustration, but her eye for visual aesthetics translates to many other mediums.
Beyond her technical skills and creative abilities, she is a pleasure to work with. She is professional, kind, patient and holds herself to high standards of work.
Leslee Udwin, CEO
& founder of
Think Equal has commissioned Mylene for a number of Children's illustration projects, and we have been incredibly impressed with not only her creative talent, but her efficiency and professionalism throughout. Every book that she has illustrated for us has been beautiful, and has been delivered well within her deadlines.
I can't recommend her services enough - a real pleasure to work with!
Super quick, excellent quality, really responsive and flexible to changing brief. Looking forward to working with her again.
