DPH asked Anna Giovannini to answer questions about what triggered her passion and persistence to become the talented artist she is today.
1. Where did you go to art school?
I majored in Visual Arts and History of Art and Architecture in Brown University, Rhode Island, mostly for general fine art training. After graduation, I took specialized courses in Animation and Comics at the Quanta School of Art (in São Paulo, Brazil) and at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City for a few months.
2. What got you interested in art?
I started watching cartoons and 90’s Anime when I was little, and loved to try and re-draw the characters and produce something. I felt happy when I was able to create something of my own, even if the art itself still had a long way to go, and what pushed me to pursue making comics further was during my first New York ComicCon, when I first saw an Artist Alley.
