About me
Hello! I’m Angelica Bacani. A Filipino-British illustrator based in London, United Kingdom. My work mainly focuses on skyscapes, and character illustrations. My skyscapes are inspired by my travels back home to the Philippines. I agree with many travellers who report that the Philippines have the best sunsets in the world. My attachment to the sky and passion for painting atmospheric landscapes helps me feel safe and calm. Through these illustrations, I aim to share the same serene feeling, to help viewers be uplifted and for tension to be taken away from their mind and body. My character illustrations are mostly based on Filipino mythology or Urban Legends. Some of my illustrations may not be directly linked to a Filipino story but I make sure the character carries Filipino/Filipina features. I like to create illustrations in a variety of forms and styles. Through my Instagram, you’ll be able to see my work with freedom and versatility. No restrictions. My “style” is a developmental process that reflects my personal and professional journey. I’m a graduate from the University of Westminster with a Bachelors of Arts in Illustration and Visual Communication. Currently seeking opportunities within a creative field to take on new challenges.

I aimed to use my illustration to make the workers and patients at the hospital feel calm and safe.
