American Illustration Profiles Interview: Sarah Mazzetti

Sarah Mazzetti is a Milan-based illustrator who creates striking graphic images with bright colors and bold lines. Her editorial illustration work has appeared in The New York Times, IL, Plansponsor, and more. Mazzetti says she like to “explore the infinite possibilities of illustration,” and has created energetic work for book covers, comics, children’s books, posters, festival branding, and art installations.

It’s no surprise that Mazzetti points to mid-century graphic design (and designers) as a strong influence. “I learned everything I know about color and balance from watching those things compulsively,” she says. Mazzetti’s work is initially drawn by hand, “using thick pencils,”  and its often poster-like nature reflects her passion for mid-century design and screenprinting.
