Restoring Memories

I have just finished working on this photo restoration for a dear friend. I really like doing them, they normally have a personal meaning for someone. By restoring that special moment frozen in time by a camera, you are bringing happiness, unleashing emotions and that is priceless.

Not much more to say, but I know that later on tonight, I’ll be browsing a photo album myself and I will raise a glass for the ones that are not longer with us.

P.S. Don’t forget we’re now on Facebook!


Manuel Mesones is a Peruvian graphic designer and illustrator. Running away from the sun, he moved to Yorkshire, England, over a decade ago. His weapon of choice is a ballpoint pen but he is also very keen on digital illustration.


  1. Thank you James. It didn’t take as long as I thought it would. I spent one afternoon working on it, so maybe around 4-5 hours. Bear in mind a ball-point pen drawing could take anything between 10 to 80 hours, 4 or 5 retouching a picture feels like nothing, ha! 🙂
