Here are some illustrations from LA-based, Filipino illustrator Leonardo Santamaria. From the atmosphere that envelopes each scene, to the sense of wonder that mines intimate introspection, there’s a lot going on in each piece. Not to mention, his use of color is beautiful and I love how he mixes acrylics, gouache, graphite and more for mix of textures that feels as if they are¬†organically evolving.
