Profile

I have a strong interest in graphic design and illustration and have done so since I was young.
I like to use all types of media, computer-based and handrendering, in order to produce quality design work. I have particular interest in illustration and editorial design, however I enjoy all areas of graphic design and my main approach never differs - attention to detail.
