Meaning Simone Hodgskiss is the illustrator, designer and letterer behind Pearly Yon. Born South African and raised in Australia, she now runs a one man show from her studio in the heart of the beautiful city of Cape Town. Living in a eclectic country like South Africa which is so abundant in culture, Simone finds inspiration in all kinds of people and places. With a love of print and all things paper, her journey continues as she explores new styles, techniques and medium of illustration and lettering. The name Pearly Yon came from Simone's grandmother who always said “whatever you do make sure you do it properly” which is a motto Simone practices with each project Pearly Yon undertakes - each work has a distinct sense of narrative and thoughtful integrity.
