Janelle Barone makes digital art for editorial and commercial clients, taking inspiration from cinematography, '80s nostalgia and technology. She studied Visual Communication at Monash University, which cemented a belief that she would rather spend her time drawing than typesetting.

Adept at bringing imaginative worlds to life, Janelle was recently briefed by The Lion's Share Fund – a wildlife conservation organisation – to imagine and create a world without animals. A recent portrait of Kevin Parker appeared in Rolling Stone, and Janelle recently created an image for The Washington Post Magazine about the effects of climate change on Gen Z.

Janelle’s client list includes the New York Times, Adobe, Metro Tunnel Project, Nature Magazine, The Big Issue, and the AUS Childhood Fund.

I find a project rewarding when…
I am able to sucessfully tell the story of something through my illustration.
To me, it’s really helpful when clients…
Are able to provide concise direction, clear feedback and where possible, create a brief with my style and abilities in mind.
My solution to creative block is…
Research, coffee, patience and yoga.
My favourite kind of space to work in is…
One where nobody can hear me sing while I work...
For inspiration, I look to…
Ukiyo-e prints, early 20th century art-deco advertising and cinematography.
I’d describe my style as…
Atmospheric, contemplative and narrative driven; with delicate linework and unexpected colours.
