For the past 10 years I've been working as a Graphic and UI designer for various companies, most notable of which is Wacom. At some point I realised that illustrations motivate me more than graphic design and slowly shifted into that field. In the past I had one solo exhibition in my hometown Sofia which had huge success and a big media coverage. My work had been featured in various print and digital publications, most significant of which are Illustration Now! 4 - an annual illustration book by Taschen, 52 Aces Playing Cards by zeixs and The Design and Design book of the year.
