Svilen Petrov, in art Spovv, is an illustrator and character designer. With some 20 years of experience in applied visual arts, he is passionate about discovering unexpected ways to tell a story through his own visual language and style. As a character designer, he possesses the innate ability to understand the persons being portrayed, and thus capture their personalities. His personal interests include being a very quiet person while practicing his keen sense of humor. For example, the name of his hometown translates as “noisy” in English, so he naturally chose to live in a small, peaceful village nearby… together with his very talkative wife and his hyperactive dachshund. He lives near Shumen, Bulgaria.
