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!

Make vector art brimming with soul in Adobe Illustrator with @Made_ByAri

Styx, 20x41", 2020. #digitalart #digitalillustration #GraphicDesign #posterdesign #poster

Hello Design Twitter, if you are a POC designer, illustrator, UX, visual designer and motion designer based in London (or anywhere in the UK 🇬🇧 ). Some friends and I are putting together a community for us to get together, share resources, teach, learn, get hired & join forces.

I am excited to announce that my blog is officially launched! I'll share the process and the idea behind each of the new illustrations coming out! Stay tuned!

So amazing seeing how many people are loving @Murugiah_ newest pieces - been an absolute pleasure seeing this artist grow and grow over the past few months. 👯‍♀️💚♥️⭐️ reach out to get him on your project ASAP and a special print release is happening next week!

Just FYI, if you're a photographer or illustrator interested in a portfolio review, just ask. Very few people do these days, but I try really hard to make time for them. I also look at every promo email sent my way even if I don't usually respond.

SPD is hosting a virtual illustration portfolio reviews. It's not free but one assignment would mean that it pays for itself.

howdi i'm MURUGIAH - A Sri Lankan/Welsh artist based in the UK making making Nonsense & Gibberish 👁🌸👁 Here is a bunch of colourful work i've been making during lockdown.


At some point you just need to admit that your idea isn't as good as you thought it was, and you need to move on.

I've reached that point close to midnight, after 2 days of work.
