About Oskar

I come from a family of artists. My grandfather built maquettes in Mexico and the story goes that he would fill up different rooms with tiny skyscrapers, city streets and tiny cars. My dad, Gerald is an illustrator, creative educator and an amazing airbrush artist. I made sure to keep art alive in my family, which led to my attendance at attended Art Center College of Design. After graduating in 2006, I have worked with notable companies such Disney, Wacom, TedX, Gymboree, Cherokee and many more. I am the founder of Little Rooftop Studio and with 9+ years of experience in the creative industry, I have been consistently praised as detail-oriented by co-workers, management and clients.

Over the years, I have worn lots of different creative hats, from graphic designer and art director, to creative consultant and educator. I don't consider myself only a designer, illustrator, or consultant. I prefer to see myself as a visual chemist. Why do I say that? Because I'm not like other "creatives" who simply make pretty pictures. I combine all the right elements to craft captivating stories that help the client tell the right story for their audience. After all, design is only as important as the story that's being told.

I am an expert in using the Adobe Creative Suite to draw, design or illustrate anything in any style. Not only do I understand how the digital tools work, but I can also draw and paint with traditional media. I am adaptable to working in any media to get the job done. Do you need to make custom textures, repeat patterns in illustrator, make your digital drawings look like they were drawn with charcoal, chalk, or graphite. Don't worry I got you covered. Also, I worked at Disney Consumer Products as a character artist. So, I can practically draw anything too.

I'm here to help you with every kind of project. Whether you need tips and tricks, constructive criticism on a unique project, or even if you're just starting out. I've been in your shoes before and I want to help you succeed. Contact me to schedule lessons. I look forward to helping you become an amazing creative individual.
