Erika LeBarre New to Folioplanet

Always encouraged by her parents to nurture her creative side, Erika LeBarre can remember putting pencil to paper and drawing as a child…a lot. In fact, it was her favorite thing to do. Having graduated from the College for Creative studies with a BFA in illustration, Erika honed her craft working along side other illustrators and designers for several years until she branched out on her own.

With an impressive client list and beautiful work to show for it, Erika creates product/packaging labels, posters, point of purchase, signage, direct mail, magazine ads, editorial, greeting cards, grade school textbooks, eBooks, websites, textiles, logos and even character development. We’re excited to have her join Folioplanet!

Erika LeBarre is represented by Deborah Wolfe.

Talented Illustrator, Bill Bruning, Joins Folioplanet

Minnesota winters keep Bill inside with plenty of time to improve his skill set and conceptualize his latest projects. Working digitally, ideas just pour from Bill’s imagination providing a multitude of engaging images. From wacky cartoon characters to realistic looking checkerboard landscapes, Bill keeps producing and meeting the needs of his clients. He has worked for Nabisco, General Mills, DuPont, 3M, Dole, Dun & Bradstreet, Newsweek, Business Week, and Gerber, as well as numerous banks, investment firms and publishers, both nationally and globally.

With a love for traditional methods as well, he also uses the winter months to return to landscape painting with oils. When the winter thaws, you’ll find Bill out on his road bike finding inspiration in the beauty around him.

Suffice it to say, we love showing off Bill’s work and think you’ll find more fascinating images in his portfolio.
