Thanks Nanna aka @littleboegekaer for taking part in our black and white illustrators’ interview series!
How long have you been drawing?
Since 2012/13, I think. I started late!
What’s your process?
I just draw whenever I get an idea really. It’s an urge most of all. I don’t really get the process but it feels magical at times.
Digital vs traditional?
Oof. Traditional is my first love but digital is growing on me.
How long does it take to create it?
Anything between five minutes and days.
Is it a hobby or your career?
It’s become a lifestyle for me. It’s become so integrated in my daily life that it’s just something I do like getting out of bed.
Why do you draw?
Because I don’t know how not to.
What inspires you?
Often it’s people. They put me in a certain mood, or say something that gives me the urge to create something. If I meet someone interesting, I often get a lot of ideas.
What is the proudest moment that you have achieved?
A tie between having drawings published in a book this year and starting my business back in 2016 when I was just 20!
What is the biggest obstacle that you have faced?
Letting people in.
You have one day to live, how do you spend it?
I’d hug everyone I love, eat my favorite things, listen to my favorite songs, and then I’d go see the ocean – maybe even going for a swim.
How can people get in contact with you?
Messages on Instagram are always welcomed! But I’m on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr as well. Email is okay too! Also wont stop you if you send a bird.
