Beatles – characters from their imaginary

I found a project from a couple of years ago that “never happened”.. meaning, it was a pitch for a book project with other artists but didn’t go through. I still like the illustrations, so I figured I might as well share them here!

These 5 characters are related to the Beatles or their imaginary (not necessarily just the songs)… can you guess each one?

100 Monkeys

A while ago I decided to join all the amazing people doing the 100 days project. I miserably failed, but haven given up: I will have 100 monkeys in the year of the monkey! Progress is slow since I’ve been using them as excuses to play with composition and technique.

The one you just saw for mother’s day is one, and here is my favourite so far:

I might share my favourite results in the blog, but if you’d like to see more head out to my instagram!

Family Custom Portrait

Family Sleeping by Carolina Buzio

I got a beautiful request a couple of months ago: to illustrate a family in their favourite shared moment, when they all sleep together in their big bed. I suggested adding a night blanket so that the space is not specific… is it a real space? Or are they dreaming? That way I was also able to add a star representing the boy’s twin brother who died soon after birth.

The inspiration piece that made this family contact me was my couple snuggling in bed (and I guess you can see that with the perspective and colours), but a different technique was used to allow for a certain warmth given by the hand-drawn look of the lines and their features.


Happy Mothers Day!

Thank you to all the amazing moms out there, for all the love and hugs and protection!

Check-In Energieeffizienz

Whether in a hostel or hotel – every guest wants to feel comfortable in their temporary home. “Check-in energy efficiency” is a programm by dena (Deutsche Energie-Agentur) to show that comfort and climate protection can go hand-in-hand.

The two films are about the exact same idea but one is for hotels and the other for hostels or inns.

Check for more details and buy it here.

Npili School – Help us build a school for girls in Africa

It feels nice when you can have a project where everything is up to you: text, storyboard, character design and animation… but it feels even better when it is for a good cause.

Guinea-Bissau is a Portuguese ex-colony, and its GDP per capita is one of the lowest in the world. Its Human Development Index is just as bad. More than two-thirds of the population lives below the poverty line… so it’s not surprising that most girls there do not have a proper access to education: most of the times (72% of the times!) they cannot even go to school since they are supposed to help their parents at home (or husband, since 37% of them get married before the age of 18).

Knowing that improving girls’ education is one of the fastest ways of improving the economical growth of a country, it is imperative to give these girls in Guinea-Bissau what they most need: a school for girls, where they are taught by women, in a protected environment for them to learn and grow.
