ART DIRECTOR / ILLUSTRATOR / ARTIST
Awaken your inner child by appreciating the good humor and talent of Felipe Andrade’s illustrations.
You may not know Felipe Andrade, but for sure, if you’re Brazilian, you’ve seen his work in countless advertising pieces on TV and in print.
Complex illustrations, digital, three-dimensional and virtual reality productions, this artist is a master at creating playful pieces with unique details.
WHY THE FOCUS ON CHILDREN´S ILLUSTRATIONS?
They are not really children’s illustrations, they just have simple strokes, which can be appreciated by children, but in general they have an adult theme. It’s not easy to make quality simplified illustrations that convey your ideas..
IS YOUR WORK ALWAYS FOCUSED ON LUDIC THEMES?
I have always worked on creativity and the awakening of the imagination. I created games long before the internet, even board games. Ludic illustration has always been part of my work.
WHAT ARE YOUR REFERENCES AND INFLUENCERS?
Walt Disney was one of the greatest creative minds, both in characters and in ways of bringing them to life. In Brazil we have countless talents like Maurício de Sousa and the Japanese have countless producers of adult content with children’s drawings. I have always consumed these styles a lot and incorporated them into my art.
WHY YOU GO TO DIGITAL NFT NOW?
WHY NOT ? In more than half a century of work, I went from pencil to 3d animation, NFT is yet another way to spread my work to the virtual world
