Philip Giordano (Savona 1980. Lives and works in Tokyo) is an Italian illustrator. He creates magazines, book covers, toys, children’ s books and animation.
His style is influenced by Japanese illustration and his shapes and lines recall a kind of oriental minimalism.
He works with a broad range of media (acrylic colours, graphite, markers) and techniques (collage, digital painting,
drawing on wood boards).
The Day I Became a Woman depicts a transformation and also the circle of life. In order to reflect the circular narrative, book is in the shape of a concertina (a pop-up book that looks like an accordion) that enables the reader to flip through the pages merging the start and the end
of a never ending story.
Philip’s picture books have been translated in many countries, including Japan, France, Brazil, United Kingdom, China, Spain, Portugal. His work has been selected to appear in the American Illustration Annual 2012. In 2009 he won the “International Award For Illustration” at
the Bologna Childrens Book Fair.
