INTRO

I am ANYA MANIA, a freelance digital artist based near Washington, D.C. With over a decade of drawing experience as a hobby and approximately five years professionally, I am self-taught and aspire to collaborate with larger industries and businesses soon. I am pursuing an Associate of Science degree at a community college and plan to transfer to a university for a Bachelor of Arts in Biology.

I specialize in illustration and visual design, seamlessly blending modern themes with timeless aesthetics. My skills extend to creating comics, small animations, and website editing. I keenly understand public preferences and excel at creating unique and memorable brands. By thoroughly researching geographic cultures, media, mood boards, palettes, and fonts, I ensure a high-quality product tailored to specific needs.

I am proficient in business and internet culture and am attuned to contemporary trends and effective strategies for engaging the right audience. I take all relevant information into account to deliver refined, high-quality work. Committed to clear and timely communication, I strive to build positive and constructive working relationships. I guarantee my best effort, skills, and a timely turnaround on every project.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST

PERSONAL INTRO

 

My name is ANYA MANIA. I am a cynical but silly 23-year-old Thai American, demi/sapiosexual, Gemini, INFP-T freelance artist based in the DMV (specifically D.C)! I'm into the early 2000s / Y2K, cyber / mecha, cartoons, blood/gore, and fashion. I enjoy pursuing illustration and pretty much anything concerning visual aesthetics or design. When I'm not drawing, sleeping, or eating, I play video games with friends or watch videos about biology/herpetology/games/sociology! You can catch me during any of my weekly Twitch streams!

I am also a very passionate environmental activistI also absolutely adore all animals, especially misunderstood ones like reptiles. I am majoring in biology and hope to become a naturalist and conservationist.

 

My everlasting goal is to share my story and creativity with the world, inspiring empathy and compassion, one drawing at a time. I hope to connect with those who typically feel out of place or more comfortable online.

This is a LGBTQIA+ and 420 friendly safe space for all!

MY STORY

Ever since I was little (eight-ish), I found escape and pride in drawing. My childhood was most certainly not the easiest to deal with, but art always kept me above water. Around this same time, I also slowly became infatuated with science. One of my greatest passions became animals, and then I got into herpetology (a zoological branch concerning reptiles and amphibians).

 

In 2021, I got my baby boy ball python and named him Bowser (because of Mario/Super Smash, duh)! He is and has been my emotional support snake and I cherish him deeply. He inspires and amazes many people, which is part of the reason why I got him. Seeing him change so many people's perspectives about snakes is something I could never pay for. That feeling fuels me with a fire to continue educating people about the powerful impact and relationship these animals share with us and how not to be afraid, but curious.

I always behaved quite differently from everyone in my life and seldom found like-minded people, almost like I lived in a unique space between worlds. Due to my introversion, I found my identity and community online with people who share similar interests to me! I always loved watching people play games, so inevitably, I became obsessed with all types of video games and even started streaming myself playing some on Twitch!

I hope you will join me on my journey to making the world a better place to live for everyone!
