[ Who I Am ]
My name is Jessica Redmond-Cervantes. I am a graphic designer & illustrator and currently live in Nashville, Tennessee. I graduated from the University of Tampa in 2016 and also studied design at the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco, California. During my studies, I was able to better myself as a designer, find both my strengths and weaknesses, and produce designs that helped to define and showcase who I am as a designer.
Besides being a designer, I am a wife and a mother to a wonderful, handsome, and stellar little boy named Kai. When I am not designing or drawing in my spare time, I am out with my family, enjoying life and every single second with my special little guy. I love to read, play outside with Kai, go to the beach ( whenever I am close to one ), be out on the lake, or go boating. I also manage my own little business on the side where I sell enamel pins, apparel, stickers, and more of my art/fan art. To me, it is important to be passionate, do what you love, and share that with the world ! I love staying busy and being able to pursue my goals while sharing my art with the world !
I am originally from Hong Kong, and I am ½ Asian // ½ British. I have had an amazing experience of sailing and traveling to many different places all over the world. Because of this, a lot of my work is inspired by my travels, the lines and motions of the sea and sky, and the many cultures I have experienced. Asian and Japanese culture inspire me the most and have completely captured my heart. I am a HUGE ( and I mean HUGE ) otaku nerd and forever will be. A lot of my illustrations and designs take inspiration from Japanese anime and manga, and I love to create fan art. I cannot express how much I absolutely love and am inspired by Japanese culture, anime/manga, all things kawaii, and cats. Once you get to know me, you'll realize pretty quickly that I am the crazy cat lady who is also one of the biggest nerds on the planet.
