My name is Tanika, I am a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and visual artist based in Cape Town South Africa.
In my four years in the industry I have gained experience in advertising, education design, story boarding, comic book art and book cover design and illustrating and formatting children's books. Although I enjoy experimenting with a variety of medium, most of my work is rendered digitally and in my spare time I like to create digital art with a focus on character design.
Inspired by nature, pop culture, street art and pretty much everything around me, my style is versatile, colorful, clean and forever evolving.
