Filippo Vanzo - illustrator
Of animals, dinosaurs, and maps...
I am a Stockholm-based, Italy-born-and-raised freelance illustrator.
I illustrate children’s books, covers and maps. I also create nature illustrations, concept art and storyboards for the entertainment industry.
I usually work in pencil or ink, and then add colour digitally, while trying to maintain a traditional feel. Sometimes I work digitally altogether if the project requires more flexibility in terms of image manipulation.
I love nature, hiking, maps, dinosaurs, video games, progressive and folk music, riding my bicycle, and sleeping. If I were not an illustrator, I would probably want be a wildlife photographer, or a park ranger.
