About the Illustrator

Emir Ayouni is the owner of Growcase and affiliated with The Forefathers Group™ A global conglomerate design studio franchised in Tulsa, New Jersey & Gothenburg.

Emir's love of illustration and design started as a kid.

"I drew my own Garbage Pail Kids cards and MAD Magazine Covers and just dreamt about one day getting to do something like that for a living. So I guess I was always into design, just not professionally."

"Fast forward, through the teen years (when beer, moonshine and friends were far more exciting than pencils), to 1997, when I was studying in Stockholm and all the computers there had Photoshop installed. So on my off time, I started to learn it by myself and from there, I schooled myself on the various Adobe software available and made the transition from pen and paper to mouse and monitor."
