Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
As the daughter of a biologist and a naturalist, I love animals and to draw them but I rarely have commissions like this. So, taking advantage of all the spare time I had during lockdown, I started this series about "patterned" animal. It's not only funny and relaxing for me, but it's also a good way to improve my skills and portfolio, looking for an exciting commission on a naturalistic subject!

How was the illustration used:
I did it as a personal project.

How did you make this work:
I did it with Procreate. First I looked for photographic references in order to understand the anatomy and shape of the animal, than I made my own drawing and, lastly, I created the "pattern" on the background, trying to camouflage the animal as much as possible.

Currently Based:

I am an illustrator “made” and based in Naples. Ironic, sometimes irreverent, I'm always curious and constantly hungry for new ideas (or just hungry). Politics, social injustice and topical issues are topics I like to sink my teeth into. Among the clients I work with: The Washington Post, Science, Scientific American, Politico, Amazon, Le Scienze, DeVolkskrant.
