Illustrator & Character Designer


About me

My name is Daniela Frongia aka Caisarts, class ‘79, I was born in Sardinia, Italy and I’m a digital illustrator with more than 10 years of professional experience.
Since I was 5 I grew up drawing Disney characters till I discovered the anime world. I then graduated at Art School and after varius art work experiences I decided to move to London , UK where I had my first personal art-exhibition.

Later I discovered the digital world which gave me more flexibility as I love to travel, now it is easier to work from everywhere as I need just my Wacom cintiq.
I enjoy working in a vast variety of artistic branches including children’s books illustration, Book Cover Artworks, Greetings card, Character design.

During past years I have been lucky enough to work with Great Authors and book Publishers and I had a chance to have work experience with a big animation studio like Prime Focus World as character designer.
In 2019 I was published in “Be Artist”, a French magazine (by the teams of ImagineFX) 8 pages dedicated to my interview and my drawings.

Not only is Daniela an unbelievably talented artist, but she is a delight to work with. She is thoughtful, creative, hard working and extremely collaborative. Her ability to bring ideas to life is amazing. She is also receptive to notes and revisions and executes them masterfully. Her talent and work ethic is second to none and I am glad I had the opportunity to work with her.

Dany has just finished illustrating my first children’s book “Just Like Maisie”.
Her creative and whimsical illustrations have brought my story and characters to life in a way I didn’t think was possible.Her input has been invaluable in making my book a reality.
Dany has always been tirelessly patient with me and couldn’t have been easier to work with. The cost of the illustrations was extremely reasonable considering the amount of work she did.
Thank you Dany!
