Anna Arkhipova – Designer

An illustrator with a love of painting fantasy characters that pop with personality and vibrant color!

Overview

Hello! I'm an artist currently based in Seattle, WA.


I specialize in painting characters to bring their personalities to life, and I love to use bold color and shape to create fantastical, strange, and striking scenes. I'm very passionate about all sorts of fantasy fiction, including narrative games and TTRPGs, and I'm always happy to work with you to transport the themes of your book into the realm of the visual.


My current illustration work is in freelance and game art assets, and I have worked on community-created zines in the past. Aside from all that, I'm constantly worldbuilding, writing, and doodling about my litany of personal fantasy, sci-fi, and horror projects – the imagination never rests it seems.

Anna is an incredible artist, first and foremost. She worked with me to bring a vision to life, and was great to collaborate with if something wasn't quite right or I had trouble describing a detail. She's truly amazing, I will definitely work with her again in the future.
