APASH illustration



Welcome to my little world drawn by ink and aquarelle. My name is Anelia Pashova or APASH.

The word APASH comes from the first letters of my name, but also has another meaning. The apaches, known as robbers and thieves, may siems provocative, but also means persons outside the system. Different.

I have studied National Academy of Arts – major in Illustration and I’m a member of “Society of Animals, Florists and Scientific Illustrators”.
Currently I’m a freelance illustrator and owner of a indefatigable black dog, my shadow and soul mate. It became part of my drawings, a great inspiration and naturally became a logo of my work.

I grew up with a love of classical art. Ink and aquarelle are my favorite techniques. I love the pencil, eraser and  the brush and cannot replace this feeling with a tablet or computer. Digital is not my tool.
Not that I don’t use programs, but I try to minimize their interference with my illustrations. To stay vivid and true to the natural.

My creativity is obsessed with all kinds of animals, and especially the drawings of dogs. They have become a symbol of my style, and a deeply emotional part of me.
