EDITORIAL & PRODUCT ILLUSTRATION

+ Commissions
On several occasions, I worked directly with emerging authors, namely Alex Edelweiss (left) and Yuna Vais (right). In Alex's case, I, for the most part, played the role of a graphic designer: I was responsible for creating fonts, designing the cover, and getting files print-ready (the portrait you see below was drawn by Daria Les', a.k.a. @chainiipocket on Instagram). But with Yuna, I was both a graphic designer and illustrator; what is more, the project is still ongoing since the author intends to publish a couple more volumes of the novel.

Cover design forThe Afflictions by Vikram Paralkar.
These are my pictures from a zine about depression. To make them, I conducted an anonymous interview with a person who was willing to share their feelings of despair and resentment. Each drawing is based on a phrase that piqued my interest.

Book cover design for Diary of a Young Naturalist by Dara McAnulty.
In 2021, I collaborated with Lev Baraban (@lev.baraban on Instagram) on his board game, Beware of the Gnomes, along with the other two illustrators. For this project, each of us had to come up with a story full of morbid humour so that the reader has a better understanding of the game's lore and has a fun time reading comics about bloodthirsty garden gnomes. My part is about a stoner boy who hates his authoritarian mother, runs away, starts a family, but eventually gets murdered by the gnomes that hunted him down.
In my second year of uni, I collaborated with a group of three other illustrators to produce a collection of wrapping paper for a startup. During this project, I came up with three seamless pattern designs.
No More Tears is a fold-out book about loneliness that provides six coping strategies. Originally designed for kids, it’s straightforward and life-affirming; it's also based on my experience of social isolation. I created this book in an effort to help kids who are now struggling to make friends with their peers.
February 24. This small diary-esque book describes my life during the first month of the invasion of Ukraine and calls for action, encouraging the reader to help Ukrainian refugees and raise awareness of this war. Since I obviously lack the moral authority to speak for the Ukrainian people, it mostly focuses on my personal experiences. This project was my attempt to make a difference and get through depression.

EP cover for Fletcher Barrett from Welkin Music. The idea behind this cover was to visualise music of different heights and juxtapose some objects so that it appeared a little bit chaotic and bizarre.
