MEET THE ARTIST
Hi! My name is Stela or Steluna on the internet. I am an illustrator that sometimes animates, does graphic design work, makes prints and whatever other creative activities come to my mind!
I am originally from Sofia, Bulgaria, with a First Class Honours BA Degree in Illustration from Arts University Bournemouth, UK.
I love drawing bendy people with wobbly limbs, bright colours and fun compositions. My style is very playful and I often use it to brighten serious topics or problems. I am passionate about sustainability, I want to talk about pollution, climate change, injustice and every-day struggles in a light way that brings awareness! I am interested in creating educational work for children and teens as well as editorial projects, advertising and product illustration.
My illustration process starts with a brainstorming, rough sketch session on my iPad - I love that part since I am figuring out how to bring the client's (or mine) ideas to life and I get to experiment. Once I have a solid idea I do clean sketches, once approved I start painting over them with textured brushes in Procreate. To finish a piece I like adding small details and ornaments or sometimes I animate my work to give it that extra attention-grabbing quality.
If you would like to chat about a project you have in mind, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
