[Update: The Fendor-Bendor by Sophia sold out really quickly, but we'll have a 2nd run ready next week (wk 43).]
It's been on-line for some time now, but this one deserves a proper introduction. We have a new limited edition Art Series Fendor-Bendor! This time by Sophia den Breems.
Sophia is a graphic designer and illustrator from The Hague (NL) and just recently finished her studies at the Royal Academy of Art in the same city. Right from that moment, her career has been taking off.
Soon after her studies, Sophia began working independently and it didn't take long before she acquired paid assignments. About these, she tells us that she loves getting feedback of her clients during the making of the work and sees these projects as team work.
One of the things that's coming back in her work is the synergy that emerges when a two-dimensional illustrations is applied on a three-dimensional shape.
Here are some of her recent projects:
^ vintage clothing store Heet Strijken
^ Mural for Eatcompany
^ Logo for Brøws Bear
Apart from assigned work, Sophia also has autonomous projects, like a comic in a local news paper, and (three dimensional) autonomous art works.
"I love all these different kinds of projects and it's sometimes challenging to find the right balance in all the things I do - and love doing. But what's truly amazing is that I'm able to make a living from what I enjoy most."
