andra badea ilustrator illustrator cuteoshenii

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".

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. My favorite illustration projects revolve around character design and illustrative branding. I love it when i get to use my former training in advertising agencies and work on a big idea or concept from scratch.

I'm also a member of the Romanian Illustrator's Club, a travel addict, cat owner (slave), list junkie and newness obsessed.
