Illustrator & Character Designer


About me

My name is Daniela Frongia, also known as Caisarts. I was born in Sardinia, Italy in 1979 and I’m a digital illustrator with over 10 years of professional experience. My passion for drawing began at the age of 5 with Disney characters and later expanded to the world of anime. I graduated from Art School and gained various art work experiences before moving to London, UK where I held my first personal art exhibition.

As I continued to explore my artistry, I discovered the digital world, which provided me with more flexibility as I love to travel. Now, it is easier for me to work from anywhere with just my Wacom Cintiq. I enjoy working in a vast variety of artistic branches, including children’s book illustration, book cover artworks, greetings cards, and character design.

Throughout the years, I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with great authors and book publishers, and I’ve also had the opportunity to work as a character designer with a major animation studio, Prime Focus World. In 2019 and 2022, my work was published in “Be Artist,” a French magazine (by the teams of ImagineFX). The magazine featured eight pages dedicated to my interview, my drawings, and some tutorials.

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!
