Hi there, i’m Andra Badea and cuteOshenii are my illustrated characters. Wondering what “cuteOshenii” mean? It’s actually a made up word a combination between english and romanian – my native language, derived from the word “cute”. It basically means “all things cute”.
But make no mistake – cuteOshenii are more than just cute characters. They’re a little weird too, they’re brave and optimistic. They love to play, tell stories and bring smiles.
But enough about them, let’s talk about me a bit now. I’m a former art director that fell in love with illustration so “we” decided to elope. All i kept from my previous life are understanding of the Brief, accepting of the Feedback and fear of the Deadline.
