Thaakirah Isaacs Jacobs is an incredible digital artist that I has the pleasure of getting to know. Art is her passion but she often only gets a chance to do sketches when she has a break from looking after her one year old daughter. She’s a 24 year old living in the beautiful Cape Town where she is a manager of the RAW photo developing department at Yuri Arcurs Production. I’m absolutely in awe of our her work and she did this super awesome artwork of me (top left) that I can’t stop admiring. I lover her attention to detail and I’m so intrigued in the idea of digital art.
I asked Thaakirah also known as @thaaks.i on Instagram a few questions about what inspired her to get into digital art and her passion for this medium.
What inspired you to get into Digital Art?
“Well, I’ve been drawing since the Age of three (My mother kept all my artworks since then!) and I knew that it would be something I’d like to take further one day. After school, I studied 2D Animation at False Bay College and thats where I learnt to work digitally, in Photoshop. Since then I havent looked back!”
