hello, i'm nana

Hello! I'm Nana, an illustrator from sunny Spain who dreams big and works hard 🌻I love painting cute characters and feelings, so I started writing and drawing my own stories in comic form early on.
I also love drawing cute small characters and animals I make merch of and sell those on my online store.
While most of my work is self-published, I've also had the pleasure of working with some companies and publishers who were interested in my work, and I'm always open to talking about job opportunities that align with my views and style.đź’Ś get in touch: natakoes@gmail.com

questions

Where are you from ?I'm from sunny Spain.When did you start drawing?I started taking it seriously back in 2011.What do you use to draw?Wacom cintiq 24 pro and clip studio paint ex. None of these are essential at all for the work, I always recommend starting as cheap as possible, my work would be the same if I never upgraded my tools, even if I'm happy with them.Do you take commissions?I don't take personal commissions too often but I'm always open to commercial opportunities that align with my views and style. Feel free to contact me anytime!

I love drawing and painting my feelings and the ideas that come to mind, as that's how it all started in the first place. The feeling of creating a whole illustration one brushstroke after the other while listening to some inspiring music, makes me travel to worlds that seem to whisper that everything will be fine.
