This month’s featured artist creates amazing vexel art and works as a freelance creative. Also, he met most of the members of the team during the Krokis event at Ayala South Mall. There, we exchanged social handles and befriended each other.

More About Karl
Did you have struggles in pursuing the craft?
During my early days when I first started this craft, Facebook groups are not a thing. There were no peers to ask for some tip on how will I improve or someone who could critic my work.
Good thing, Google and Youtube are already existing by that time.
Curiosity ignites the power to create and tickle your sense of hunger to learn.
What keeps you on doing the craft?
I’m still not good enough. Therefore, I keep on practicing.
Top 3 favorite tools?
- My unit (laptop, pentab/mouse, photoshop)
- Spotify/Youtube (this help me boost my creativity)
If you are to share your tips and tricks to newbies, what would those be?
