Oscar Llorens brings us back to childhood with this illustration especially created to customize the wall of Mozz, a new restaurant that has just opened in the city of Laval (Quebec province). A bit of innocence and smoothness as a child’s play!

The Colagene experience according to our clients:

We reached out to Colagene for an illustration that was both nostalgic and contemporary. Illustrator Sonia Roy stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. So happy with the result. David W. Radabaugh, Art Director, Southwest: The Magazine
