About Camille's land

Hi, I'm Camille! I'm a French illustrator and writer currently based in the UK. My inspiration comes from the world around me – from things that I hear in the street to shapes I see on my bathroom tiles – and my work is driven by the desire to make people smile and to spread fun.

Camille’s Land is moving

Hi everyone,

You haven’t heard from me in a while. This is because I have been doing some restructuring work behind the scenes.

Camille’s Land is moving house and will now be directly attached to my new portfolio website.

What does this mean?

It means that I will no longer publish posts here on the WordPress blog. You will still be able to access and read my older posts on here until the 1st of September 2019, when I will close this blog.

If you want to keep reading my posts, you can do so on the new Camille’s Land blog here.

I am so grateful for the support you’ve shown me over the years, be it in the form of suggestions, comments or likes. Hopefully I’ll see you on the other side!

5 Mistakes I Made As An Illustrator

As my illustration business turned one year older recently I was thinking about all the things that have happened since I started, all the opportunities I’ve had so far, all the things I want to achieve still and all the ways I have grown. This includes the mistakes that I made. I’m sure there will be a few more along the way and I’m not suggesting that what happened to me would necessarily happen to you – everybody’s experience is unique after all – but I decided that I’d share my mistakes in the hope that maybe you can avoid some of the traps that I fell into. Here are my five biggest mistakes to date. Some of them are really cringe-worthy. (You’ve been warned!) Continue reading

Bring it on 2019!

2018-2019-rainbow

Hi everyone! Happy new year!

I hope you didn’t think that I had abandoned you. The reason I got quiet during the last quarter of 2018 is that I got so busy with Inktober and work that I felt overwhelmed and I just couldn’t find the time or the energy to write. You know me, you know that I love you and that I love sharing my thoughts with you. But I love ‘me’ too and I value my physical and mental health, which I had to put first.

Now that we’ve cleared the air let’s take a look at the highlights of 2018 and my wishes for 2019! Continue reading

Thoughts On Blogging

A lovely maker whose posts and content I love recently surveyed her Instagram audience about blogging, and more specifically about how to find things to blog about. Her question got me thinking because I used to ask myself the same question – I sometimes still do! – and after sharing my experience with her I realised that it would actually make a good blog post, so here we are!

A Summer Of Learning

Hi everyone!

Since a lot of people (and therefore clients) are taking things a bit more slowly and/or are going on holidays things have slowed down a bit in the studio. This led to asking myself how I could make the best use of that time.  Continue reading

Five Ways To Nurture Your Relationship When Both You And Your Partner Are Workaholics

When I started my business I had this idea that since I was my own boss and able to choose my hours I would end up working a nice 9 to 5 and use the rest of the time doing whatever else I wanted. I was wrong.  Continue reading

Bye Bye Bootcamp

Camille-Medina_Bootcamp-Artwork

Hi everyone!

As some of you might know already, at the end of last year I enrolled in the Make Art That Sells (MATS for short) Bootcamp class. As a result I spent the first five months of this year creating artwork for the course in my spare time. MATS Bootcamp 2018 ended a couple of weeks ago and I thought now would be a good time to look back and share the artwork I produced. Continue reading
