ABOUT ME

I'm an Illustrator & Motion Designer based in Dubai

When I’m not drawing illustrations I’m busy making them move. I’m powered by a couple of things:

  • A good design challenge.
  • A hot cup of coffee.
  • Collaboration projects.
24/7

The amount of time spent on projects, seven days a week.

AVID COMIC-CON GOER

I frequently exhibit and sell my work at MEFCC.

COFFEE INTAKE

Number of coffees consumed per hour on any given day tends to skyrocket in order to get that work done and done well.

LANGUAGES

Besides a hefty serving of HTML and CSS, I speak Tagalog, and a bit of French!

MY SHOWREEL

Did you say draw?
I’m your girl for beautiful digital linework, painterly pixels, and all inbetween.

      Visual words - a set of static typographic experiments to explain or enhance the meaning of the word depicted. I must admit some of them may seem a bit forced, but I had fun with them nonetheless. Perhaps some kinetic versions are in order.

      A logo I produced for a doll-making company. I was told that ashi means smile.

      A mock-up of what was apparently supposed to be my personal website? Could have been nice but I eventually went for a much more minimal and simple design operating under wordpress. At this moment (and for as long as I can keep up web hosting fees), my website is available at michellepanesa.com
