About Yaroslava Apollonova
My name is Yara, I'm a freelance illustrator and character designer based in Berlin, Germany. Illustrating stories and playing with characters was something I've been extremely passionate about all my life. Ever since I was 12 I had zero doubts that one day creating illustrations would be my career.
Nowadays I create my illustrations for a wide range of clients, from packaging and character designs to children's books and stickers. My main focus is children illustrations in publishing, as well as character designs for TV shows, brands and individual clients. In my free time I play with my cat Ciri and  work on my debut picture book that will be announced soon.

My artworks are always based on geometry, simple forms, unique combinations of textures and colors. I love using soft color palettes and find fascinating ways to reveal the story. 

I'm represented by Kelly Dyksterhouse at The Tobias Literary Agency. Get it touch with Kelly at kelly@thetobiasagency.com for work opportunities.
