the Illustrations of Yan Nascimbene

Cosimo and Napoleon by Yan Nascimbene

Cosimo and Napoleon by Yan Nascimbene

Stumbled across this artist through The Art of Animation 1. Loved the art immediately, and then I realized that I was clearly looking at illustrations of Italo Calvino’s The Baron in the Trees, which is a fantastic little novel that I’d recommend to anyone who likes things.


  1. Which, somewhat ironically, hardly relates to animation – its focus is on still illustrations, which are rarely even connected to an animated film or anything.

What do you think?
