As far as shape is concerned, he attracts with colors and fine linework, perfectly suited for T-shirts, while the content manages to give birth to some fun, expressive and engaging characters.
The fact that he started with comics is a clear proof of what drives him most. This is what actually shaped him into a true designer and externalizes the humourous person inside.
