@chovelasarts - from star chef to digital artist
Cholo Velas is a 25 year old digital artist and freelance illustrator from the Philippines. His Instagram feed is full of captivating girl illustrations that display his fine attention to detail while keeping a minimal style. Before becoming a full time digital artist, he was a chef in top-rated restaurants and hotels for 5 years. Now his customers are couples and models who ask him to draw their portrait. We at PaperLike wanted to find out more about the artist behind the beautiful portraits. That’s why we asked him a few questions about his work and advice for aspiring digital artists.
