My "Imaginary Friends" series came to life as a result of the effects of this year's lockdown, both on my career as a freelance illustrator and my personal overall state of mind. Out of the lack of projects and abundance of free time, came a series of characters inspired by my long time fascination with primitive art and tribal masks, which i found extremely fun to play with, while creating introspective portraits that reflect my way of dealing with isolation. From completely losing track of time to the nonsense i've been seeing online to the sheer to the serenity of it all.
