“In awarding Noumeda Carbone the Illustration prize of Art Takes London, we knew she was an amazing talent. Capturing a world that’s fantastical, surreal, elegant and slightly spooky, Carbone’s works in ink, pigment and pen excite us for what’s to come next in her career. Turns out Vogue noticed her talent, too.” by http://www.artistswanted.org/prev_exhibitions/art_takes_london_2011/
