  • Saturday Sketches 2020

    So… the story goes like this: my 2020 goal was making a series of traditional works. And it tuned out to be more difficult than I initially thought. Sure, I could blame it on my lack of patience ( …I do the sketch in pencil. I scan the sketch. I finish it in Photoshop. I…

  • Visual Playground – Day1

    I spent the end of July and the beginning of August 2017 in Bucharest, taking part in the Visual Playground workshops. This is a visual diary of sorts, accompanied by field notes and photos.
