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.

When Graphism Meets Words

BY FRANCIS MIZIO
@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

Architect and artist Ciancio Alexandre collects forgiven clichés with no known history and transforms them into brand new collages. More than a graphic work, he tries to evoke and create new stories, new emotions. 

After a 20x20 in December 2013 about the dangers of creative ideas ( http://www.pechakucha.org/users/francis-mizio ) the humorous novelist, columnist and teacher in communication Francis Mizio has embarking on a perilous exercise : improvise his 20x20 from images created by an illustrator... pictures he has not seen before projection. This challenge will probably prove that ridicule kills... or not. This can also be fine. Or not.
