The Man Behind the Soda Artworks

Well, Sillvi did not just create female cartoon characters. He also made several handsome boys that we could match with these beautiful girls. You should see the cartoon character version of CocaCola Zero and Dr. Pepper.
Sillvi created a total of fourteen artworks. According to him, he worked over two hours for each cartoon character. “Each of the artworks took me about two hours to complete, and since I have 14 of them, I’ve spent about 28 hours on this project. While developing my characters, I mostly focused on two elements: the aesthetics of the logo itself and the taste of the soda. I also drank a few of them before drawing their characters.”
Aside from being extra meticulous and considerate to create the perfect character that will resemble the drink, Sillvi also learned one thing which inspired him in creating these artworks. “Artistically, I’ve been experimenting with various different themes that encourage engagement on social media. I came to the conclusion that people react better to things that they are already familiar with, for example, pre-existing characters, logos, and so on. So, I’ve decided to put my own twist on famous soft drink brands to make them even more unique.”
