J.Liswed – Autodidact
Independent artist & designer

SOMNI is a professional illustrator and designer that has a passion for visual storytelling. An active collaborator since 2015, he has been working with others to develop their ideas and realizing them in print. In previous work he has taken on a wide range of roles in publishing but works primarily with visuals related to art and design. Along with years of experience working with private and commercial clients, he brings a distinctive visual style rooted in western traditional illustration and Japanese manga.

Most of his work ranges from fantasy, science-fiction, crime, horror and comedy but he frequently moves out of his comfort zone to grow as an artist.
