Artworks About Links

Hello! My name Is Patara and welcome to my portfolio website. I am an illustrator and a character designer with backgrounds in graphic design. I'm very proficient in Photoshop, but I enjoy both digital and traditional medium.

Early in my career, I started as a DVD menu interface designer for Disney & Pixar titles such as Monsters, Inc., Toy Story Ultimate Toy box, Atlantis, Emperor's New Groove, and The Muppet Treasure Island. Additionally, I also worked as a comic book colorist, working on titles including X-Men, Red Sonja, Vampi, and Darkstalkers. Eventually, I found my true calling as an illustrator and a character designer for various toy and game companies. My most visible work was the designs for MEG's "In My Pocket" series -- the "Puppy in My Pocket" figurines sold over 200 million units. After the success of the figurines, other merchandise followed as well as a TV series that is currently showing in Europe and USA. Over the years I have worked on my own designs and started a small company called Vuduberi with some friends. We design and make plush toys, t-shirts, and other merchandise from characters that I have created. It's a lot of work, but incredibly rewarding to see flat drawings come to life as a tangible object, and even more so when other people enjoy the final results.
