Izabela Ciesinska – Illustrator

From her earliest days in the crib, Izzi spent most of her time looking at pictures and then attempting to draw them. As a child she absorbed every picture book she could get her hands on. She read them all, drew them all, and she smelled all the pages.

Soon enough she discovered the amazing world of animation. She even tried to animate her own scenes only to discover that tracing 24 frames per second was easier seen than done. Eventually her ambitions evolved into film and illustration, and many broken pencils and torn up pictures later, she went on to illustrate over 50 picture books, as well as direct her first short film, “NEDE”, which premiered at the 2010 Montreal World Film Festival. Currently Izzi is working on a number of illustration projects alongside some film projects in development.
