Shirin Karbor

About me:

Shirin Karbor is an Italian-Iranian freelance illustrator and graphic designer based in Aberdeen, Scotland. Her work features simple flowing ink lines and a never ending cast of lively characters which reflect her appreciation for simplicity, energy and humour. Shirin’s love for engaging narrative is inspired by classic animation, vintage European comics, multi cultural folklore and the works of charismatic mark makers such as Roger Duvoisin, Yuko Shimizu, Jean Jullien and Quentin Blake. After studying graphic design, Shirin turned her focus to children’s illustration and enjoys inviting others to participate in her work through live art events and art workshops for both adults and children.
