My name is Nathanna Erica and I'm an illustrator and paper artist based in São Paulo, Brazil.

Most of my life has been defined by early animation movies, and I grew up wishing that someday I'd be able to be a part of what I love the most about the animation industry: storytelling. It's safe to say that I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil and even before that my mum would get me to eat by distracting me with drawing lessons, so, yes, it comes without saying that I love to draw. Maybe a bit too much. Is there such a thing as too much drawing?

When I'm not drawing, I'm probably wishing I were, or I'm watching some film or TV show involving wizards, magic rings, dragons, police boxes/time machines, more dragons and... Sherlock Holmes. Did I mention Sherlock Holmes? Better not get me started. I also love to travel. Sometimes I dream of spending the rest of my days visiting every corner of the world, every monument, every museum, every bookshop, and sketching and painting every little detail I come across.

I can't imagine my life without art, and having graduated from Law school a few years ago made me see that doing anything else other than being an artist would be really difficult.


My work focuses mainly on Illustration, Visual Development and Character Design.
