MEET AKILA

OUR NEWEST ADDITION TO THE LF COMMUNITY

Born in Sri Lanka and raised in Oman, Akila is an illustrator and graphic designer. Starting a career in the business world before shifting into his creative work in 2018, he focuses on commercial/editorial illustrations and brand design, with a slight halftone obsession.

He enjoys making art that is tongue-in-cheek social commentary that almost gets him white-vanned and other general nonsensical themes. Akila’s work is mostly drawn to vintage styled illustrations like retro comic books and subjects that walk a fine line between real-world issues and pop culture.
