Who are you Kactus?
Hi, My name is Edwina, I’m 24 years old and I’m a graphic designer. You can find me on Facebook on the name .Kactus
How long have you been drawing?
I’m drawing for a very long time, almost 15 years. The turning point was my first manga.
Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon which were on the television every day at noon on TMC.
What inspire you?
For a long time I draw my inspiration from the manga. But now for few month, I improved my style. I’am inspired by pictures found randomly on the web.
Who are your favorite artists?
I don’t really have one. I love what Diglee or Maliki draw. I have a thing for the Art nouveau, for Klimt.
How would you describe your style?
My style is quite common. But I add my original touch by integrating pictures. My style is soft, romantic.
How are you working? Environment, Software, music?
I’m working whenever the desire to draw comes. Very often on photoshop with a « TheSoundYouNeed » playlist.
Do you have advice to give to people passionate like you?
Work, again and again! =) Draw everyday to become better.
Which are for you the key characteristics a graphic designer should have?
Being curious and being cultivated at the same time. Listening to people and observing them. Let yourself « Dream big ».
What are your projects? Would you like to have one day your own comics?
No, I don’t think I will make a comic. I am too lazy for that. I would like first to work on my personal style. When I will be satisfied with my illustrations, I would like to contact magazines or women website.
Work hard, even in the dark ♡
