Stories are the way we share information with each other. They can be sad or funny, long or short, but they should always remain interesting. This is what unifies our works, despite the fact that they are so different.
Aga Lut is a freelance graphic designer. To ease her mind and to relax after her commercial work, she started to illustrate. “I used to illustrate people a lot, but I’ve grown bored of it.” - she says. One of the main reasons was that she felt she was lacking her own unique style; many illustrators do something similar, and maybe it’s a good opportunity to experiment. So she said goodbye to digital painting and started her adventure with vectors. Quite a rewarding one, she adds.
I missed painting on canvas a bit, but I definitely didn’t want to get dirty nor had I space for all that gear, so I started to wonder: how can I convert a bit of painting to vectors, not as a digitalized brushes, but in a modern way? I came up with simple shading which reminded me of strong brush strokes on canvas. I developed a geometrical style of portraying animals. And started to talk about my feelings through it. My illustrations are mostly a form of self-therapy.
