I’m Hannah and usually you find me working on hundreds of projects, like this website or a new drawing. I have to many ideas in my head and they come to my mind when I’m already busy.
There are links to all my social media channels on this site. If you want to have closer look at my work, you should check out my Instagram account! Of course I will also post the newest drawings on my blog too.
Art is the one of the things I can’t live without. I’m always busy and I need something to calm down. Nothing worked as good as drawing. I just could sit at my desk for hours and draw. I basically forget the world around me, as cheesy as that might sound like.
With characters everything started. I already was doodling around on the folders of my friends in 10th grade and one of them said: “Why don’t you draw them for real, with colored pencils?”. I tried that, liked it, and when I went to Florida for my year abroad, I took a bunch of art classes. I even took part in a so called “AICE Art and Design” program and all my projects were about character design. I was always carrying around my sketchbook and tried different methods to draw or paint the characters. When I came back one year later, I also took a class at the Ringling College of Art and Design about character design. I learned how to connect my characters with my pattern drawing.
I used to paint them with watercolors but a while ago I started using colored pencils by Faber-Castell, i.e. Polychromos pencils. For outlines, I use Pigma Microns from Sakura of America, and for highlights a white gel pen from Uniball.
I wanted to draw a reindeer for Christmas and since a normal one would be too boring, I put the reindeer in a pullover. Since then, I fell in love with animals in pullovers, bows, or with anything unique on it. Currently, I have a long list of animals I want to draw, but if you have any suggestions don’t hesitate to let me know!
I usually draw on an A4 or A3 Hahnemühle paper, using Faber-Castell Polychromos. With Pigma Microns from Sakura of America and a white gel pen from Uniball I add some details. I tried to use some other materials like charcoal, but usually just for experiments.
