Based in the small town of Ar­recifes, Buenos Aires, Floren­cia Per­ni­cone's jour­ney to free­lance il­lus­tra­tion be­gan at a very young age, in her pur­suit to en­ter­tain. "Around the age of 17 I got re­ally in­ter­ested in comics and il­lus­tra­tion," she says, “and had a lot of fun draw­ing, and I loved mak­ing other peo­ple laugh with it.” Spe­cial­is­ing in ir­rev­er­ent, grotesque 2D char­ac­ter il­lus­tra­tions, since go­ing free­lance Per­ni­cone has had great suc­cess work­ing in mul­ti­ple medi­ums. "I find work mak­ing dif­fer­ent kinds of things for comics, cov­ers, an­i­ma­tion, T-shirts… I also sell prints, stick­ers and self-edited zines." With re­gards to in­spi­ra­tion, Per­ni­cone re­veals that she never needs to look far. "I like to take in the de­tails and the fun from the ev­ery­day – the things and the peo­ple around me." www.fper­ni­cone.tum­blr.com
