The work of Tooco

Illustration // Monday, March 26, 2012
'Tooco is an artist and illustrator by the name of Francisco. Tooco could have been an architect, but the ride was short between beams and scaffolding, and finally he decided to go into the illustration world. He studied Graphic Design at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), and now looks at things from a different point of view.

That road may be the most difficult, but it is certainly also the most rewarding.'
