The Story So Far
Hey there, fabulous folks! I'm Richard Darani, your friendly neighborhood Graphic Designer by day and Illustrator by night.
My creative playground is none other than Hornchurch, Essex, where I weave magic into art prints and sprinkle charm onto greeting cards.
Being a lone wolf artist, I'm sending you all the virtual high-fives for the incredible support that's helped turn my illustrator dreams into reality. And guess what? I'm on a mission to transform this passion into my full-time gig – watch out, world!
Now, let's rewind a bit to my younger days. Imagine a kid with a Looney Tunes obsession (that's me!) spending hours doodling characters and dreaming big.
Fast forward, and you'll find me, jaw-dropped, at the Warner Bros store, surrounded by animation wonders. Yep, I even sweet-talked store peeps into giving me character-covered tissue paper for my DIY posters. Crafty, right?
As I grew, my journey led me to rub shoulders with magazines like Asiana and Where Magazine, mastering the art of retouching and artworking.
Warner Bros, Film UK, and the Olivier Awards also got a taste of my creative flair.
The highlight? Winning Ohh Deer's Pillow Fight competition in 2018 – a design of mine became an online sensation!
And guess where else you can spot my work? The Turpentine, Junk and Disorderly, and State of Distress, of course.
So there you have it, a sneak peek into my world. If you're itching to know more, don't be shy – fire away with those questions!
