Brief Summary
Gaston´s work typically utilizes vector-based cartoony characters, but each image takes the next step by switching up some detail so they’re extra-silly and delightful.

Gaston Caba (1978), freelance illustrator. He currently lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His work was featured worldwide in many websites, international magazines, exhibitions plus some books like “Pictoplasma - The Character Encyclopaedia” (Pictoplasma Publishing), “Pictoplasma 2” & “Tres Logos” (Die Gestalten Verlag), “Illustration Now 2” (Taschen), and the cover for the “Latex for fun” book (Die Gestalten Verlag) among others. He was member of Grupo Sorna, an eclectic bunch of writers and designers, where he developed a flash animation series named “Mundo Juanca”.

In 2005 he created the “Ping-Pong Remix” project, an ambitious collaborative project in which he invited more than 70 of the best illustrators/designers around the world to remix his ping-pong characters into original artworks.
