Illustration On Every Page
From children’s books to exhibitions and band posters Sonia Dearling, has been freelancing and taking part in a wide selection of exhibitions and creative showcases
Both her passion and hobby of illustration gives Sonia the opportunity to be a part of some inspiring creative developments, like Photoshop’s 25 Under 25 initiative at the end of last year.
“I’m really inspired by other creatives’ work and ideas. Visiting new spaces and attending inspirational talks is what keeps me going. As a ritual, I listen to audiobooks and podcasts to keep me focused while I illustrate and when I just can’t anymore, I make sure to get some fresh air or to get my body moving,” mentions Sonia.
As a firm believer that personal projects outside of work keep people thriving and growing, Sonia uses her illustrative outlets to test, learn and play. “The trick is just finding the motivation and the balance, it’s still a constant struggle for me, but it’s always so worth it.”
