A quick summary about my work flow:
No copies! Less references! More creativity! Freedom to create is essential if you want to get an original piece.
Give me 2 themes/elements or more to merge into an unexpected surrealistic piece. Tell me size, placement and colors you want. That’s all I need. Trust me and you won’t regret!
My designs will always mix black and vivid watercolor, dots, lines, geometry and patterns, as you’ve seen on my portfolio. I’ll show you how the design will fit to your body in Photoshop. We can do some tests, adjusts and when is approved… needles!
No lettering, refreshments or small pieces. Only custom designs made over each client idea.
