Hi! My name is Ngoc Diep Barbara Tran, but I go by my Polish short Basia.
I graduated with honors from Ringling College of Art & Design in May 2017 after completing two years in Computer Animation and two in Illustration. I'm a mostly Vietnamese, part Polish, and a bit of an American illustrator working in YA & children's books, music, animation, video games & advertising. I am currently based in my beautiful hometown Kraków, Poland.
Despite my upbringing and work being diverse, it is connected by a common thread: my desire to tell stories that could make you laugh, teach you something new or even bring you some peace. Best of all, if they could be all of the above.
If you have a project you’re passionate about, big or small, hit me up! I would love to work with you :)
