Anna Pan, also known as annaxiin, is a Chinese-Australian illustrator and animation student. 

Anna started making art in 2012, at 17 years old. She has grown a substantial following on Tumblr, with each of her drawings typically garnering a couple of thousand notes.

“I definitely started as a way to communicate small ideas as cute little comics, to make others laugh. I think being able to convey emotions through art is still one of the most important things to me. When I started I was going through a pretty tough patch in life and it definitely helped me to stay anchored to the ground, so to speak!”

Outside of art, Anna enjoys music, fashion, and studying different sciences.

“I’ve also recently picked up cooking and it’s made such a huge difference in my life, as well as being a nice break from working all the time!”

Anna derives inspiration from several renowned artists like Hiroshi Yoshida, Katsuhiro Otomo, and Taiyo Matsumoto. She is also inspired by those around her.

“I find that a lot of my close friends and art acquaintances are the most inspiring and always push me to do better and be a better person!”

You can support Anna by keeping up with her here on Tumblr, checking out her website, following her on Twitter, and buying some of her prints.
