Simon: “I first caught Rose’s works under my radar thanks to her illustrations for The New York Times. There’s a clear link to fashion in her character design, which I find very appealing. I also enjoy the fact that even though her shapes are quite simplified and minimalistic, she manages to capture quite spectacular details in her projects.
I find the posts in which she gives insights about her process, inspiring as well. So make sure you explore not only her LooooooookBoooooook Instagram account showcasing her characters, but also at her regular account!”
