Is the future of illustration FEMALE?

At .art Domains, we LOVE featuring new talents that join our community. This unique tribute will feature new community members regrouped under one big theme or idea. This week, we would like to shine some lights on some brilliant illustrators. In the spirit of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we think that the future of illustration is female, and we are introducing you to the creative work of 5 inspiring illustrators.   

Illustrator: An illustrator is an artist who specializes in creating visuals that are giving life to concepts that were previously expressed by ideas or words.
