Born in 1975 in Alès (South of France), Sophie Griotto is a designer whose artistic path began through applied arts at Nîmes, Toulouse and Paris. Since then she's been able to work with illustration story board for some arts agencies. She makes beautiful art portraiting women, and reminds a lot of Robert McGinnis.
Her focus is at the contemporary urban woman, and researches her accesories and attitude, which makes her personality a lot more original. Even though she doesn't use much lines, Sophie compensates using lots of colours in her designs, what makes her work really stunning and vivid. Her tools of trade are the graphic stiletto, pencils and pastel crayons. Sophie's favorite artists are René Gruau, Tadahiro Uesugi, among others. I really recommend that you visit her portfolio, she's got a lot more beautiful works there. And if you notice, I kinda tried to translate her french about me. lol Cheers! ;)
