About

Hi!  My name is Diana and I love drawing!

I'm just finishing my Architecture degree and during the last months of my exams, I've been also working as a freelance illustrator and taking commissions. In November 2017 I launched my first Kickstarter project “Home portraits” as part of Kickstarter’s Commissions campaign. It got successfully funded with 100 backers and 370% of the original funding goal! 


I am currently drawing all the Home portraits (more than 100 drawings in total!) for my backers and I get asked a lot if I’m going to do another project soon…so…Here it is! 

My second Kickstarter project “Home portraits | 100 Places I’ve lived (and loved)” is a continuation of what I already started with “Home portraits” - combining my love for Architecture, Art and story telling and in the same time making people happy with what makes me happy!
 

 

 


Everyone has their favorite places – world famous attractions, parks, restaurants – but the places that are closest to our hearts, are the ones we create ourselves…Everyone's Home is unique as the people living there. I believe that a Home's character lives in the details, the effort and thought, people put into making this place their own - the way the curtains are moving when the windows are open, the color you chose to paint the walls, the bed sheets you got from Ikea for your shared apartment room and of course, all the memories created there...The combination of all of those things is what makes this place not only a place to live, but Your place to love, to share, to remember and to tell stories about

“Home portraits | 100 Places I’ve lived (and loved)” is a way to keep a memory, to make an awesome present to someone you love or something to celebrate and honor the story of your own favorite place! I want to tell your unique story and to illustrate your one of a kind space! 

“Home portraits | 100 Places I’ve lived (and loved)” is not only a crowdfunding project but also a participatory project – the final result of will be an e-book, which my backers will be part of with their 100 favorite personal places. All my backers will get the e-book along with their illustrations. 

 

If you choose to take part in this project with your dearest place on earth, this is how we are going to do it:  

1. You choose a nice picture (or pictures) of the place you want me to portray. If you don't have a picture - that's okay, we can also use Google Maps, but make sure that you have checked before if the images are up to date. You can also give me detailed description without a picture and I’ll do my best to visualize it. 

Remember - any personal information I will receive during your commission is confidential, no names or addresses will be shared! Also - I would love to share my process with my backers and keep everyone excited for their illustration, but if someone asks me to keep their drawing in private, I will fully respect their wish!  

2. After you have chosen the place - we talk about it! What story has this place to tell, who are we making happy with this illustration, do we add colors, is there any specific things you want to include in the drawing - any bits and bobs that might be relevant. Each illustration will be accompanied by a few descriptive sentences or a short story in the book.  

3. Then I will do a sketch and show it to you, so you can make small changes if you don't like something, before I start inking it or adding colors. It is extremely important to me that we communicate our wishes to get the best Home portraits ever!  

4. Your illustration is ready! 

It will be part of the book “100 Places I’ve lived (and loved)". I will send you your original drawing per post as well as a high resolution scan of it. 

5. You tell everyone about it and I continue drawing, because that's what I do! <3

First Kickstarter project "Home portraits" :

Note: If my project reaches its goal and I get to start drawing, I will do it in chronological order - meaning that the people who backed me first will get their drawings first and the estimated delivery will be in April, May, June and latest July!

 

Stretch goals: If the project reaches 1000 Euros more than the funding goal, I will print 100 limited edition copies of “100 Places I’ve lived (and loved)”.  

 

 

Risks and challenges

Recently I have been challenging myself to take my skills on a professional level and to work as much as possible on commissions. The success of my first Kickstarter project gave me more creative confidence and proved that I am on the right professional path. For me not only doing art but also communicating with clients, managing deadlines and coordinating different projects at the same time has been such a rewarding and motivating experience. This project will allow me to learn by doing and to grow as an artist and person.
