Leandro Castelao

It’s easy to see how Leandro’s initial pencil-to-paper techniques influence his final work. While they are super clean digital designs, they maintain the flow and movement of an image that has had it’s curves and corners discovered by hand.

'I came to New York to visit a few art directors and see if I could really hustle like an illustrator. One of the places I visited was the New York Times when Leanne Shapton was still there. The day before I left, she asked me to do the Letters piece, and that was my first encounter with the real illustration world. Someone gave me money to do what I wanted to do, and it was amazing.'
