Vero Romero

I’m a Mexican illustrator, painter and designer currently based in Brooklyn.

I’m constantly going back and forth between these three disciplines, and of course finding them perpetually influenced by one another.

My painting started as a personal project that has since grown and led me to develop it, alongside with my illustration, in major ways. I always like to remind myself of the importance of personal work, since it’s through this that I’ve gotten some of my most meaningful career opportunities.

By putting it out in the world, I believe that artists or designers can get commissions that feel more aligned with what we’re interested in creating.

Most of my work centres around portraiture and the celebration of the human form and identity, without boxing either of these into a specific norm.

I truly love colour, and find myself leaning towards unexpected combinations. I’m also very attracted to flat yet textural surfaces, with graphic elements and playing with composition. I can credit this to my background as a graphic designer, and feel grateful to have the opportunity to create work in these three wonderful, yet very complex, fields.

Stefano Meloni

My name is Stefano and I am an illustrator from Sardinia.

I moved to London straight after graduating in New Technologies of Art about 5 years ago and since then, I worked hard to improve my skills in between full-time jobs.

I started drawing cartoons about 10 years ago, as they have always been my main tool to express myself where words couldn’t reach. I really enjoy creating work where I can visualise my thoughts, and when it comes to being commissioned for something it’s even better because I can visualise my client’s thoughts.

A few years ago, I happened to get into patterns to ‘rest’ from only doing cartoons. This allowed me to explore shapes and colours more deeply, and after a while, I started to implement them into my cartoons as well.

In general, I like to experiment a lot, as my needs evolve during the process and because I relentlessly seek improvement. 

Last but not least, my most recent passion is giving new life to old, broken, unused items which I just happened to cross paths with. I feel a stronger connection to them than with brand new items, because they have already a story behind them.

In my freelance career, my work has been featured, collected and exhibited around the world, mainly in the UK and USA.
