Our favorite artists, illustrators & comic book authors discuss their work and show us their take on our crafty supehero, Crafterella
I'm a Cartoon & Comic Art student in my final year at University from the UK.
Besides making my webcomic I love to make colourful illustrations, especially portraits and creating characters, but I'm trying to branch out a little. I like a lot of pink cutesy art and my main inspirations tend to be webcomics, such as Heartstopper, Unfamiliar, and Cucumber Quest.
In my free time I mainly watch horror movies, game playthroughs from GameGrumps, listen to DnD podcasts, or eat way too many chocolates/desserts.
I'm mostly active on Instagram or Twitter (@starsinmycoffee)
Jenn St-Onge (aka “Princess Jem”, she/her) is a tatted Canadian cat mommy/comic artist. She loves coffee, Bioshock, and anything spooky; she is definitely not several cats stacked in a trench coat (probably)
My name is Apollo and I’m a British/Russian high school student and illustrator living in the UK. This year, I'm applying to study Animation at uni, so we'll see how that goes.
In my spare time I enjoy playing Dungeons and Dragons and listening to podcasts, both of which are my biggest inspirations. I love having a story behind my work, so drawing things from my D&D campaigns is very rewarding for me.
As someone who wants to go into animation, I enjoy drawing my characters in exaggerated poses or with a wide variety of face expressions - currently, my favourite subject matter is goblins, because their faces are so expressive and fun to play around with. I also love character design, and making characters who are very distinct from one another is always a fun challenge.
I'm most active on my instagram, where I post daily, so check it out if you want to see more of my work (@apollinares).
Jiji studied illustration at the Academy of Art in foggy San Francisco and graduated with a BFA. She currently resides in her sunny hometown of Las Vegas. Her body of work features an arsenal of chic sassy characters, fantasy/macabre themes, and above all a sense of body positivity. Jiji’s roots began in the worlds of Japanese graphic novels, but they have since expanded to adapt the tastes of art nouveau, minimalism, and the power of negative space and what it can lend itself to. She is inspired by modern day artists like Babs Tarr, Audrey Kawasaki, and Lois van Baarle and classic masters such as Alphonse Mucha and Romain de Tirtoff.
I am an illustrator from South Korea.
I love to make playful and colorful illustrations. And in my free time, like to play with dogs, watch cartoons, movies, while eating delicious desserts.
I'm a visual development artist and illustrator that loves exploring, traveling and searching for adventure.
I´m absolutely in love light, color and form.
On my free time I enjoy rock climbing, everything that has to do with nature, making music, playing video games, reading and writing stories.
I am a visual artist from Chile, now based in Denver, CO. For years I worked as an illustrator, but by now I am mainly focused in my painting.
I love plants, light and colors, and I am also a Tarot enthusiast! All these influences mingle in my work taking me though unexpected paths.
I'm a character designer and illustrator from Brazil. I believe we are here to enjoy life, inspire others and feel inspired. I do my work with the intent to spark inspiration and joy in the audience. I am grateful for being able to work with what I love and I hope it shows in my drawings and paintings.

I’m a spanish character designer for animation and videogames. I'm learning 3D modeling, animation and C# programming on my own.
My name is Natsuki Otani, Tokyo born illustrator who worked in England, Portugal, Germany and now Sweden.
My hope is that my illustration can make people happy even if it is for a moment.
I have a style that is best described in colour and realised in detailed design. Bold vibrant colour forms the basis of a working practice that seeks to unite dreams and reality.
