Jon Camacho, a Los Angeles-based artist, combines high fantasy environments and characters with everyday items and spaces to create fantastical narratives. He uses digital art programs, such as Procreate and Photoshop, to illustrate and design works that tell wondrous and exciting stories. Camacho achieves this by incorporating elements of the modern-day home, from rooms to household items, into fantasy spaces. The goal of his works is to create fun pieces that evoke child-like imagination in objects and home settings that usually go unnoticed.
