Every week we highlight one of our amazing doodlers! Today we have the pleasure of sharing more about Magda Kalina aka @magdakalina.illustration
Please can you give us a brief little introduction about yourself?
My name's Magda. I live near Poznań, Poland with my family-husband, son, daughter and our ragdoll cat, Zizik (Zeezeeck). I've started drawing again in 2018, after a long, long break. I've got my iPad last year and since then have done illustrations to a couple of books, some logos and a comic strip. I'm a little bit of eco-freak, Non-violent communication enthusiast and a former teacher wanting to be an illustrator.
What inspires you?
I'm mostly inspired by nature and i just love creating drawings based on Friday Doodle Club's prompts!
What is your favourite thing to draw?
Animals, nature and food 🙂
What art goals do you have for this year?
I want to finish doing illustrations to my book about Little Red Riding Hood, a Wolf and a vegan steak. My another goal is to become a tattoo artist and take up some courses to be a children's book illustrator.
What techniques/supplies do you use?
I used to paint with watercolor but now i use my iPad and Procreate only. My fave brushes are Studio Pen and Dry Ink.
What advice would you give to another doodler/artist?
Try to find at least 20-30 minutes a day to draw or learn something new, write down all your ideas, don't be too hard on yourself and try to avoid comparing to other artists.
Where can people go to learn more about you or see more of your work?
