hi there! names Jonathan Torres, you can call me Johno or Johnny for short, I am a freelance illustrator living in Australia and I simply just love art, every kind of art, every level of talent, if there is one type of art that has always fascinated me as a youth was character design.
I've always loved movies, cartoons and comic books and the characters were always what stuck out to me the most (what they looked like, what they wore, their personality etc..), and for as I can remember I have been sketching random characters on paper to this day
