Hey there! My name is Emmanuel and I'm a self taught designer/illustrator constantly looking for new things to learn. I believe that the fundamentals are the most important things to learn as they are your foundation for anything you try to accomplish in the future!

I am currently working as a designer at an educational startup, (product hasn't launched) whose acronym is BAFS!
