I’ve fallen in sweet love with Alberto’s Family through ETSY but you can also visit their website or blog. Sebastian Bandin is the owner and designer of Alberto’s Family. But what you may not know about him is that he’s also an illustrator as well as a musician. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentia, Sebastian has always enjoyed drawing as it was something that came naturally to him.
Then 5 years ago, Sebastian decided to move to Berlin. In the midst of moving to a new country, he started to make toys. This was a way of making three dimensional figures from his drawings. And it wasn’t too long before he started to receive great feedback. That’s when he started the Alberto’s Family project which includes handmade dolls, illustrations, postcards, notebooks, bags and stickers.
As an artist and designer, Sebastian feels that every day we further distance ourselves from nature and forget how important love is. In order to mend this problem, Sebastian uses love as the theme for his overall work. Thus giving him energy to spread the message on the importance of love. While he keeps his drawings simple and primitive, Sebastian is influenced by the work of other similar artists. And it’s the inner child in me that’s become attached to his dolls. You can’t help but love each and every one of his wonderful characters.
