photo Photography by Torsten Drever
A Filipino/Italian illustrator living and working in Berlin.

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 or losing at overcomplicated board games.
Waste no time...drop a line!

Dear companies hiring freelancers: Please be upfront about your budget. Don't expect the freelancer to try and guess what to charge without losing the job. It's not like coming from YOUR pocket. It's been budgeted for, so spend it. You know we undercharge at the best of times.

Come and say hi - we've been waiting for you! Take a moment to distance yourself from this busy space and let's just talk about life.

If your design team is specialized enough to separate UI and UX, why are you handing off your illustration tasks to whichever graphic designer on staff can draw the best?

Please don't hire an illustrator if all you actually want is a more vibrant stock photo.

Many thanks to the Google team for the amazing art direction!

Focus comes from the Latin word for Hearth. A hearth is traditionally a place of Sacrifice. A hearth is an altar.

Focus is an altar.

To focus means to sacrifice something.
