Vision (personal work):
When working on my own personal projects i like to see myself as a researching Illustrator. I explore how tension can be created and a story can be told by using contemporary Visual instruments. How society works and our collective vision on this society form a big source of inspiration for my personal work. In addition, my love for games and videogames allows me to search for subjects, atmospheres and moods that don`t necessarely need to be realistic.

Experience

    During my amazing time here, I mainly worked on creating hand painted character and environment assets in different styles. From realistic to very stylized. It was a great experience to develop additional technical skill that could fit in a professional environment and tight time-schedule.
