My name is Anja, though I go by “piranyeah” in the online world.
I’m an Illustrator and Comic Artist based in Augsburg, Germany.
I was born in Vukovar, Croatia, but grew up in the beautiful countryside
In the Summer of 2019 I finished my master studies with the first two chapters
of my original Graphic Novel »Nowhere«, a project that’s very close to my heart,
which is why I’m continuing to work on it as a Webcomic.
My passion lies in creating characters, their stories and the worlds they live in.
I’m focusing on Illustration, Concept Art, Character Design and Comics, and I
attach great importance on Storytelling.
