The artist recently graduated from MA Course and now trying to expand his portfolio to get some opportunities in illustration world.
“I mostly get inspirited by human body. I love drawing fat people with small head, but bigger hair, and their oversized bodies. I enjoy playing with the anatomy, trying to look from different angles as well as draw different stances. I enjoy drawing different looking people, sometimes looking cute, sometimes bit naughty. In other words, I created my own anatomy norms and I m trying to improve it as much as possible. My plan is depict more people who you are not able to see in your daily life. And maybe at some point I want to create colourful illustrative sculptures” Caglayan explains.
