About

IMG_5726_edited_edited.png

Christina Drust, a professional illustrator from Hastings, UK, recently graduated from ESCG Hastings (with a BA in Visual Communication through Illustration) and she is passionate about traditional ink illustration. Drust aims to break into the graphic novels industry, infusing her work with dark humour and exploring unconventional ideas.

Throughout her studies, she has experimented with various mediums, but she has found her niche in traditional illustration using ink and brushes. Her approach to art is marked by lateral thinking and a willingness to push boundaries, often challenging norms while infusing her work with a blend of serious topics and dark humour or absurdity. Some of her favourite projects have involved pushing the limits of traditional illustration to convey thought-provoking messages.

 

Drust has immersed herself in the local art scene by participating in group exhibitions across the UK and being published in indie art magazines. Beyond her creative pursuits, she finds solace in outdoor sketching, reading graphic novels, and sharing her work online.
