These are some of the works i did in the past few years. I like to experiment with styles and having to illustrate every month an article for the same magazine(Playboy Romania) but for fragments of books from diferent authors and subjects gives me that freedom. I usually mix traditional techniques with digital art and I usually have a one week deadline per article. Sometimes when I have to do storyboards I work faster.
Stieg Larson, Playboy
A set of images done for a few paragraphs from the sweedish authors book "The Girl Who Played with Fire".
Cannes Lions Shirt
A T-shirt design I did for myselfe for Cannes Lions Advertising Festival, where I represented Romania in the Roger Hatchuel Academy
Studying graphic desigh I can enlarge my horisons and find new things to incorporate into my illustrations. I think not following an illustration school is a good thing because like that you risk to get influenced too much by a teacher`s style. In my free time I do a lot of research and I do it for myself, not for a school
Photography is my other passion. I even was a trainer for artistic-foto-editing in some international media camps. In my free time I like going around and taking pictures. Many times I photograph textures or objects which I later incorporate in my compositions. It is a good creative exercise.
