Profile

"MY JOB IS TO HELP TELL STORIES AND BRING LIFE INTO THE IMAGINARY WORLDS THAT WE DREAM OF." I am a freelance illustrator and artist living in Finland. I’ve illustrated two children´s books, designed the look and feel of different characters and illustrated postcards and other printed materials. I do most of my drawing and painting digitally with Adobe Photoshop & my trusted wacom cintiq pen display. Sometimes I like to mix traditional sketching and textures into my work. I am passionate about illustration and storytelling. I love books, games and animations and would love to be a part of creating their unique visual worlds. I love imagining the world, events, history and culture where the characters are living. Finding out who they are and what motivates them. What their world looks like and how this affects the look of the characters. In short, how to build believable and unique characters and universes. The biggest influence in my development as an artist has been my teacher and mentor Glenn Vilppu who's teaching, feedback and overall generous attitude towards life, has been invaluable to me. Feel free to approach me with your project. I am looking forward to working with you. Hanna Kenakkala
