A Filipino/Italian illustrator living in Berlin.

I dabbled forever in art and many of its malformed afterbirths before finally taking a shot in editorial illustration,
which I couldn't be more happy with.

My style is a bastard of 1930 goldenage surrealism and 2019 vector art dilettantism. I like bright colors telling me terrible things.
Favorite subjects to draw center timeless topics such as power, money, science, death, love and fried chicken.

Outside of work you usually find me developing vegan recipes, losing at overcomplicated board games or starring at a dead tree, hallucinating.
(I wanted to say something more interesting than reading.)

Waste no time...drop a line!

A common misconception about vector artwork is that it's usually flat and cold. But you can actually add a great deal of softness, dimension and texture.

Last night while teaching my Photoshop class a student called me over with a question and then I accidentally deleted the project she spent 2 hours on (she hadn't saved it yet).

"I hope you learned your lesson." - I said as I ran away.

ur art gets better when you do other things and have non-art hobbies to inform what you do!! watch movies, read books, get into underwater basket weaving, go to concerts, volunteer, etc https://t.co/RmPtqLNDIQ

@charlenedraws Absolutely, we've had conversations that go:
Client: "Can this artist draw a giraffe?"
Us: "Sure, they love drawing animals, here's an example of a dog, a cat, a goat, and a horse"
Client: "Cool ... but can they draw a giraffe?"
