His love for the decade of the 60s and 70s was influence by his parent's passion for blues, rock and soul. Following his Father's path in Graphic Design, Paco Raphael Kriljnen graduated from The Hague University, in the Netherlands, majoring in Interactive Design. Unable to escape his love for Graphic Design, he began freelancing, mixing his illustration style with digital art. Borrowing elements from the past, his style consist of American influences, with a touch of erotica, in a mixture of a warm color palette. Paco is currently freelancing, offering his illustration, graphic and webpage design services, but he would like to expand into interior design, and accessories.

The title "The Strange New Works of Mark Brown" is the first description to his webpage. Once you see his work, it only makes sense...or does it? But as strange as it may seem, his work is fascinating.
Great imagination and character design! According to Ojofrito, aka Raúl Real, means Fried Eye in spanish. He got his nickname because of the long and intense hours in front of the computer screen. Ojofrito started in sculpting, which soon lead him to 3D modeling by natural progression. His passion in character design is not fixated to a flat realm, but his vision of these characters could be translated into toys, sculptures, art installation, film, and more. He gets his inspiration from his daily surroundings from current events to his children's daily experiences.
