I am happy to introduce this week's Featured Friend, Debora Saucedo! I love her cute retro-inspired characters and illustration. She has a lot of really adorable craft and plush creations as well, which you can view on her Flickr and MySpace.
“My name is Debora Grahl Saucedo and I'm 25 years old. I live in Porto Alegre, a city in southern Brazil, with my husband and our mischievous cat. I've always loved to draw, ever since I was a little kid!
Currently, I work as an animator and illustrator, and in my spare time I love painting, drawing, graffiti, sewing and create fabric patterns.
My influences are classic animated cartoons, Japanese cartoons, graffiti and tattoo art.
I love to give a touch of humor to my characters! Hope you like my pattern! :) ”
