ART ILLUSTRATION STORIES
Freddy's work intersects art, entertainment, and fashion.
CHARACTERS ICONS MOVIES
He honed his art by building the Smiling Planet brand and illustrating books. Freddy's illustrations and stories brought Smiling Planet to life and resonated with young and old across cultures and around the world.
His character Guru Lion is on mission to connect the world with wisdom, love and donuts - but not necessarily in that order ;)
