I'm an illustrator, designer and a painter who specialise in illustrating people and their emotions. My style is a bit whimsical and eerie. I am working mostly in an old-school way: with traditional pencils and paints, I tend to use computer only to polish things up. When it comes to my technique: it's all about mixing textures, layers, sometimes adding a bit of collage, my priority is to make emotional and unique piece.
Working many years in advertising agencies taught me how important is finding the balance between beautiful and meaningful illustration or book cover, and a strategically successful design.
I'm looking forward to working with you!
