Nastplas: when pixels turn to dreams

Ever since I began studying photography, I fell in love with the art of photo manipulation for the way it pushes the limits of my imagination. But instead of trying to understand the technical process, I prefer “diving” into the story, admiring the beauty of the artwork I lay my eyes on. When I first saw Nastplas designs, I had mixed feelings; I was overwhelmed by the multitude of ideas and sensations that came out of those artworks, as in front of an open soul. They look like dreams unraveled in front of my eyes.

Nastplas is actually a Madrid –based creative team formed by two Spanish freelance designers and illustrators. DrFranken and Natalia Molinos use various techniques in their work, from 3D, airbrush, vectors and photography. DrFranken is the software developer and digital illustrator, while Natalia Molinos is the Creative Director, and also a decorator and interior designer. Their special credo: nobody is born knowing everything so make sure you improve your work every day by studying, exercising, using new techniques and trying to be as original as you can.
