Illustration // Tuesday, March 27, 2012
'I’m an Argentinian illustrator currently living in Spain, where I share a studio and a life with my husband and fellow illustrator Federico Piatti. I started out as a graphic designer but that didn’t involve enough drawing funny creatures doing silly things, so I became a full-time freelance illustrator instead, and I love it. I work both digitally and traditionally, often mixing the two. I also suffer from a very serious book and comic addiction.' Victoria Maderna

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. Not from a utopist and non-existent freedom, but from a knowing that what matters most is to do what we really know we like, deep inside. That road may be the most difficult, but it is certainly also the most rewarding.'
