My Life as an Illustrator

BY ARON VELLEKOOP LEÓN
@ VOL 5 ON FEB 28, 2013

Aron Vellekoop León (Fuerteventura, Spain 1987) is a graphic designer & illustrator, currently living and working in The Netherlands. His work is best described as a mix of symmetrical shapes, a plain usage of elementary colors
and reused textures. This basic recipe has led to a characteristic infographical 'handwriting' and an abstract way of storytelling. Being inspired by traditional printmaking techniques, Aron always stays close to that handcrafted look and feel.
