How is it to have a terrible nightmare, while dreaming peacefully, not scared of the consequences? Or how is it to experience a dream which is non threatening, yet has mysterious and dark undertones?

I am interested in the combination of dreams and nightmares. My style is driven towards the middle between these opposites. I believe that dreams reflect reality, even if incompletely, and are not pure fantasy. As a biologist, I have been surrounded by noisy pictures and incomplete data. Reality is noisy, and one must navigate towards an understanding of it with care. In my drawings, noise has a meaning of incomplete reality, because sometimes what we see is not the complete story. It may be like a nightmare passing off as a sweet dream. I work with noisy and dramatic media, like dark charcoals and black inks, while I incorporate soft and colorful watercolor into my work, as a way to create a dreamy nightmare.

I do conceptual drawings about various topics radiating from my interest in science and technology, and its impact on society. I look forward to illustrating articles about such topics.

As a biologist with a background in neuroscience, cancer research and bioinformatics, I also am able to read specialized texts and to produce conceptual illustrations for both scientific and popular publications. Follow my newsletter for an insight on my process with a dash of science facts!

On the side, I like to work making small video games. If you want to collaborate in a future Game Jam, please let me know. I will also update about new mini-games and their process in my newsletter, so stay tuned!
