Illustrator Research #33- Amy Saidens


Amy Saidens was trained as a traditional painter, and she began her illustration career in the late 90s for Microsoft.  She became the artist behind the "Blissgirl," and she created over a dozen covers for a spa catalog.  Amy is inspired from subjects such as vintage cookbooks and high fashion.  She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. Her medium is digital vector art, which crisp shapes demonstrate her particular style.

Some of her clients have been Lucky Magazine, Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, Bliss, Chronicle Books, Stacy's Pita Chips, New York Times, Harper Collins, St. Martin's Press, The Knot, Running Press, Teen Vogue, Mattel, Microsoft, Scholastic, Espirit, Seventeen, Penguin Putnam, Grosset & Dunlap, Glamour Germany, Girl's Life, Twist, Lifetime, and CosmoGirl.

I enjoy her figures overall, and her color schemes are also fun as well. All of her work is very playful, and the digital aspects are working nicely.
