Alexandra S. Badiu is a Romanian children’s book illustrator, animator and visual developer for animation. She got published in Turkey and United Kingdom. She participated in various group exhibitions in Europe and USA. She has worked on many student projects creating backgrounds for animated senior films and participated in collaborative projects with the Harlem Globetrotters, Adult Swim, Hallmark Cards and Kwippit app as a student. She was the multimedia editor for award winning SCAD Connector and SCAN Magazine in her last year of studies at SCAD Atlanta. She graduated with the highest honor for graduate students, Excelsus Laureate in 2018.
Her love of animation and books drove her decision to becoming a children’s book illustrator. Creating visual worlds and the ability to share it with children is her ultimate passion. Because she grew up admiring these worlds created by other people and the opportunity to make the next generation feel the same is priceless to her.
Alexandra enjoys illustrating nature, fantasy and science stories for children. She believes science is an important subject for every kid to learn and what better way than a fun children's book to introduce your kids to science. Most of her artwork is clear and straightforward in order to communicate better with young children. She works digitally but practices and sketches traditionally to keep the natural aspect of her brush strokes intact. She loves to sketch landscapes and nature with gouache and bring the texture of traditional mediums to the digital world.
