Unique Cards and Book Illustrations by Mariota Percival

book illustrations by mariota percival

Talented artist Mariota Percival specializes in unique beautiful cards and book illustrations. She has illustrated three children’s story books and provided a number of illustrations for Shuter & Shooter Publishers school books. They include a range of styles and paint media (ink pen, pencil crayons, acrylic and watercolour paints), depending on the age-group of the readers.

Some book illustrations that have captured Mariota’s attention since she was young, and have inspired her, include Barbar the Elephant, Captain Pugwash, for their simplicity; and all the Tintin adventure books for the humour and detailed, animated expressions of their characters from around the world.

Her cards are one of a kind and include both postcards and greetings cards. Some were created for special occasions, some for personal use for family and friends, and others have been commissions. Media used are gouache, ink pen, water colours, collage, acrylics.

The dog and cat series has been printed and is currently for sale.

    Sites, stores, etc? Or if there’s a hobby store that sells blank cards(preferably 3×5 inches) so I could illustrate on them, I’d like to know what store and how much.
    Thank you in advance!
