An illustration from a series of portraits I've made for a friend and that travelled over seas, all the way to the USA. This portrait was for her sis and her hubby, a fun couple that have a lot of passions. I'm really happy with how it turned out, especially with the colour palette.

the couple

These portraits were for one of my favourite couples and some of my good friends. I understood these were a gift for him from her for his birthday, but also a celebration of their relationship and I think it's a really cool gesture and idea. Shes' colourful, he's passionate. Here's their personalities captured.

the stickers - second act

In the same anatomical manner, here's another series of stickers, the 9th edition, part of my collaboration with Uman Shop (see the 8th series of stickers). Your laptops, notebooks, dresser doors and whatever else, will be improved with two new skulls, a weird banana and a bony bird. Spoiler alert: more to come!

If you want to know how you can get your hands on some stickers, check Uman's Facebook page for details.

the besties

Continuing the series of  "the different kind of" portraits I've made this past holiday season. I'm assuming they were all gifts so I'm really proud of being a part of their experience and also hope they were well received.

This portrait was about capturing true friendship. Two girls, mixed personalities and clashing looks but somehow all coming together very well.

it's been a ride

After all those monsters it's time for some creatures with features. Continuing my project for "a different kind of" portraits and also starting of a long series that I made this past holiday season. Not just for friends but also for customers. This one, I think guys will find pretty awesome, because it has some hot wheels. A portrait of a really cool couple and also a reminder of their relationship.
