I am Laura Vargas, a Colombian illustrator living in Belgium. I draw whimsical illustrations that can be used for editorial purposes, wall-art or placed in personalized highly designed objects.
I focus on client’s ideas and transform them into a visual story of their own, adding a twist of humor and cuteness. Their illustration immortalizes an important event of their lives, the birth of a child, for example, and can be printed in any media.
My personal projects are based on my everyday life, my memories of home and my experience as an immigrant mother living in a small European village. I use illustration to create common grounds with my new country, to understand their people and culture while bringing up my own background.”
