More about this book

This book features an exclusive bookplate signed by Djamila Knopf and a free mini print.

Illustrator Djamila Knopf leads us through her world, where anime-influenced characters, exquisite settings, and the process of creating fantasies enchant her fans worldwide.

Having settled on her own authentic, creative style, featuring line art and a palette of delicate yet impactful colors, Djamila has decided to write a book that charts her journey. Japanese art was a key influence from an early age, and the book illustrates how Djamila has fused her favorite aspects of anime with her own, the result being a unique style that has captured the attention of both art fans and the industry. Her approach to storytelling and ideation are covered in depth; although artists have different approaches, Djamila shares her own experiences and insights to help readers fine-tune their own early stages of creation. As a fantasy artist, symbolism and fantastical scenes have always been part of Djamila’s world, and here she shares how she works with these, as well as finding very personal connections to even the most general of concepts.

The final leg of the journey is visiting Djamila’s own studio, where she discusses being an independent artist, her daily routine and workspace, and the practical aspect of time management and motivation.
