Meet Ali Gulec

"I am an illustrator and designer from Istanbul.  At my design studio "ikiiki" I always try to create surprising and inspiring works.  Finding hidden messages in simple objects is my passion.

Since my childhood, I've been drawing, sketching, illustrating.  I always used to be like this and never meant to create something for "art."  I just did it because I enjoyed it.  I'm professionally making t-shirt designs for many well-known brands which are mostly in Europe.  It's generally a fun job, but when I'm bored I start making illustrations just for myself.

My favorite sandwich is "Kumru" - a special sandwich which can only be found in Izmir, a beautiful city in Turkey.
