Labdien! My name is Ervins, I'm a 33 year old self employed graphic designer in my own company FREAKART from Latvia. I like to draw things and challenge my creative side on daily basis, that's why I created this stunning owl design for Victorinox contest. I also made the feathers in autumn color palette, because it's my favorite time of the year.
