Silvana Baylac transforms into Seelvana when she draws
Silvana lives in Punta Alta, Argentina. She studied for many years at the Academia Conte Grand, but she stopped drawing when she felt umconfortable with realism. Later on her hands got antsy again and drawing became a hobby.
In the year 2010 she started doodling as she waited for her biyfriend´s radio show to be over. She drew while she waited, her sketches developed a style and she put her drawings “out there”.
With so much practice her drawings got better and she discovered they could be the path to a lucrative career.
Today Silvana transforms into Seelvana when she draws. She is an illustrator, not only by poeple´s definition but above all because her drawings turned into products that are seen all over the world. Drawing is her work, the one that makes her happy because drawing is the only work she does smiling.
Seelvana is the one to tell her story:
The day you stepped into your current creative space for the first time, did you already know how you wanted your studio to look like or did the design evolve from the actual space?
It has evolved. At the beginning I had a few materials and I didn´t put much intention to decoration either. Now I have boxes and boxes of stuff everywhere, papers, paints, frames and posters.
After the work is done, do you clean up after each piece, after each day or whenever you can´t find the table anymore?
Whenever I can´t see the table any more. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Which is your best time of the day to create? Do you have music on or do you prefer to work in silence?
When I come back from my day job, after lunxch. In silence since a while back.
Which is your next project?
An illustrated recipe book! We´ve been working on that one for a couple of years now and it should be out in less than a year from now. *fingers crossed*
