Illustrator Luiza Bione

Last week I stumbled upon the work of Brazilian illustrator Luiza Bione, AKA Lubi.  I instantly fell in love with her illustrations, (self characterizations of herself, Lubi and her boyfriend, Fubi). Read her story below…

Rio de Janeiro illustrator Luiza Bione’s (http://instagram.com/iamlubi) portraits of herself as a colorful character named Lubi blur the line between daydreams and reality. Luiza has been documenting her life through colorful illustrations for as long as she can remember. As a small child she created a cartoon version of herself called Lubi and has been illustrating herself for the past 18 years. “Through illustration, even bad moments—like waking up with a bad hair day or sitting in traffic for hours—become funny. Drawing also makes virtually any scenario possible: if Lubi wants to visit the moon she can.” Luiza began using Instagram after her boyfriend Paulo Delvalle (http://instagram.com/paulodelvalle) suggested it might be the perfect way to really bring Lubi to life, telling her story as if she were a real person. “Last year on Valentine’s day, Paulo made me a card, asking me to be his girlfriend. He created an illustrated version of himself called Fubi, and that’s how (http://instagram.com/iamfubi) was born. Since then, I’ve been drawing Lubi and Fubi based on our lives as well as all the things we dream of doing.”
