Caran d'Ache ambassador for the Graphite Line 

A self-taught lover of drawing, Diego Fazio first focussed on creating Japanese-style tattoos, developing a precise and refined technique.
However, this artist – who is now internationally renowned under the name DiegoKoi – soon discovered the delicacy and beauty that each shade of black can offer.

His work is hyper-realist and focuses in essence on drawings of the body. Mixed with different materials and textures, he creates works that straddle the real and the unreal, blurring the line between photography and drawing. His spectacular artworks have won him many prizes and have been exhibited the world over.

  • I draw several hours a day so I use professional tools such as Grafwood pencils, ideal because of the unique quality of their graphite and their incredible duration.

    Caran d'Ache ambassador for the Supracolor Soft line
    Nina Cosford splits her time between London and Hastings and is a tireless globetrotter who never goes anywhere without her sketchbook. She is a talented illustrator who depicts the eccentricities of the modern era such as the little problems of daily life through brightly coloured characters. She is often featured in magazines thanks to her inimitable style that is both colourful and full of humour.

    Her work is now also used by some of the world’s biggest brands. However, Nina Cosford also puts her talent to work on topics that are close to her heart, having created numerous books celebrating renowned female figures.

    Caran d’Ache Haute Écriture ambassador 

    For his first book Et à la fois je savais que je n’étais pas magnifique [And suddenly I knew that I was not outstanding] which was published in 2017 by Éditions L’Âge d’Homme, Jon Monnard successfully combined wonderful literary flair with a critique of youth of today. Lauded by both the press and his peers, this young author entered the literary scene to great acclaim.

    Today, with the support of a grant to promote the creative arts, he has launched a project dedicated to the American novelist Francis Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda Sayre, who was sectioned in Switzerland in the 1930s. Caran d'Ache is supporting this project by making Jon Monnard its Haute Écriture ambassador.
