Alicia Souza – Chumbak’s Illustrator

with one comment

This week we’d like to introduce Alicia Souza – the artist that helps bring Chumbak creations to life.  Alicia’s whacky and fun style has won over many hearts and she has shared some insights into her creative process with us.

What inspires you?
“Everything and nothing. I guess sitting alone in a room can get me thinking about the quirkiest things to do, yet sometimes going out, even for just a drive, can show you things you’ve not seen before!”

Who is YOUR favorite illustrator?
“Ohh, well, I have many favourites but I’ve always had a soft corner for Quentin Blake. Something about his loose lines and colour makes his pictures look like an organised mess”

What Chumbak project did you have the most fun doing?
“Hands down, Bobby the bobble-head. I’ve never thought I would get an opportunity to do something in 3-D so soon! I was stoked that it came out perfectly and such a relief too. I’ve never been so satisfied. ”

What medium do you like to draw on besides paper?
“People, when they are not looking. And slings. ” (Hehe..funny girl that Alicia…vot? )

What do you like to do other than your art and Chumbak?
“Make coffee, drink coffee, write letters, and dodge cows on the streets. And I have an extensive collection of photos of my dog, so unconsciously, I believe I like taking photos of my dog.”

Here are some ‘illustrations’ that have become Chumbak bestsellers:
