For 14 years Shi­row (other­wise known as Stef Van Rossem) worked as an IT en­gi­neer. In 2013 he quit to fol­low his pas­sion for art, and be­came a free­lance il­lus­tra­tor. “It has been a great ad­ven­ture,” the artist says. “I didn’t go to any art schools and had to learn ev­ery­thing through books and on­line tu­to­ri­als.”

Shi­row has found suc­cess rel­a­tively quickly, cre­at­ing a string of il­lus­tra­tions for video games. This year he pub­lished his first chil­dren’s book.

“I like to com­bine comic book and manga styles with dig­i­tal paint­ing. All my work is dig­i­tal, since I don’t have a big workspace.”
