I am Elina and I am a Freelance Illustrator
How long does it take you to draw an illustration?
It takes about 15/20 minutes for me to draw an illustration. It depends on how detailed and how large the illustration is.
Are your illustrations based on people in your daily life?
Sometimes they are, however I find myself inspired by everything in my everyday life and a lot by song lyrics. My work is a reflection of my imagination and emotions.
It’s great when talent meets business. How has it been for you?
An artist’s biggest dream is to monetizing their art. It takes a long time to achieve this goal. For right now my art is my hobby.
What do you admire most about your heritage?
My handwriting and childishness.
How has it influenced your work?
It helps me put a stylish "signiture" to my works- I want to believe that it portrays my roots and my background.
