Every week, UnderPinned puts a spotlight on two freelancers whose work we believe deserves a special mention. If you’d like to apply to be one of our Freelancers of the Week and be on our Showcase, make a portfolio on our Virtual Office!


Karis Miller, Illustrator

I am currently working as a Technical Illustrator, and have been working as a freelance illustrator for the last 2 years. I focus on visual development and the art of animation, and I create mainly digital artwork to capture atmosphere.

Stefano Meloni, Illustrator

My name is Stefano and I am an illustrator from Sardinia.

I moved to London straight after graduating in New Technologies of Art about 5 years ago and since then, I worked hard to improve my skills in between full-time jobs. I started drawing cartoons about 10 years ago, as they have always been my main tool to express myself
where words couldn’t reach. I really enjoy creating work where I can visualise my thoughts, and when it comes to be commissioned something it’s even better, because I can visualise my client’s thoughts.

A few years ago I happened to get into patterns to ‘rest’ from only doing cartoons. This allowed me to explore shapes and colours more deeply, and after a while , I started to implement them into my cartoons as well.

In general, I like to experiment a lot, as my needs evolve during the process and because I relentlessly seek for improvement.

Last but not least is my most recent passion for giving new life to old, broken, unused items that I just happen to cross paths with. I feel a stronger connection to them than with brand new items, because
they have already a story behind.

In my freelance career, my work has been featured, collected and exhibited around the world, mainly in the UK and USA.
