Hey There! 
I’m Kristy Anne Ligones a.k.a. KDLIG (Kay-Dee-League) I’m an Illustrator, also doing a bit of graphic design, but mostly illustration base. I'm currently working as a concept illustrator here in Dubai.
I used to work for an American Publishing company base in Cebu Philippines as a Picture Book Designer, then had a brief job as a Graphic Artist at a boutique advertising agency in Cebu called Studio 7. I also ventured into freelancing for 3 years at my hometown in Cagayan de Oro city, before heading to Dubai to work as an in-house illustrator for Team Young & Rubicam Advertising Agency (VMLY&R) for 7 ½ years. From late 2017 to early 2021 I ventured in freelancing full-time in dubai, working for various companies, from ad agencies, production companies, events companies and more. recently, I got a full-time job as a concept illustrator for an architectural firm here in dubai, that specializes theme parks.
btw if you hire me for freelance, make sure you hire me for my work, cuz I worked hard to put up samples of my stuff, and I'm paying for this website and domain, just for you to see if i'm the right one for the job, and please don't base my rate on my race, where I come from, the color of my skin nor my gender, if you're looking for someone that is cheap and can work for free, go learn how to design and draw on your own! 
(don't worry, i'm really a good person, just pay me and I will deliver the goods, then we're all happy people =D)
