My name is Jessica Bacuna, born in 1996, living in Eindhoven and I have roots in Curaçao. In Den Bosch I studied illustration at AKV Sint Joost and graduated in 2017.

I’m fascinated by things that I don’t understand, often socially relevant topics which we question, such as our strange ideas of beauty and social media. As a reaction to my fascination I use strange elements in my work combined with lots of color and playfulness.

I prefer to make traditional illustrations so that I can experiment using different materials such as wax and oil pastels, gouache paint, colored paper and different textures.

I really enjoy making editorial illustrations and did commissions for clients such as Mest Magazine, Hard//Hoofd and One World
