Alejandro Ovalles is an illustrator from Caracas, Venezuela. He loves to create happy characters (sometimes), really digs into mid-century art and works with textures and vectors. Alejandro has a compulsive need for button badges and thinks it is one of the most amazing canvases there is – and we could barely agree more.
