Cartoon Capriccio by Rad Sanza

Cartoon ape

The cartoon style illustrations of local artist Rad Sanza depict unique characters and worlds, mixing fantasy and modern settings with bold colors and lines. Rad's work is created using both digital and traditional techniques. Simple paper, pencil and various types of ink are used initially, and other colors and effects are added digitally. Rad's caricatures have been seen at Oakland's End of Summer Museum Party and currently, he's working with the Oakland Public Library to bring coloring sheets depicting each branch.
