This week, on Illustrator Highlights, we are proud to feature the works of self-taught artist, Israa Mahran. Due to her busy schedule, we chose to share a few of our personal favorites from her portfolio in lieu of an interview.
Israa is currently working on her Bachelors in Visual Design at Bahrain Polytechnic. A self-taught artist with the desire to develop her skills and talent, she has a passion for art and hopes to live off it one day. Israa is a traditional artist who works mostly with Watercolors, Copic Markers, and Gouache.
Israa describes her biggest dream to “draw beautiful illustrations similar to the scenes from Studio Ghibli movies, where they’re breathe taking and yet are still a form of art.”
When not bogged down with school work, Israa works on her personal business, Bee’s Art, where she takes commissions, as well as personal art. She also provides the following:
