Hello! I am Marion Sanguesa, the illustrator behind Sanguesita. I am a Frenchie who has been living in Qatar for more than half her life now. I went to VCUQ (Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar) where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design in 2012. Since then, I have been working in the fashion industry with a local retailer. Cooping with work, gym and social life didn’t leave me with much time to draw. I realized that I missed drawing and spending 3 years without drawing seemed like I never went to a design school, and that’s why I started Sanguesita. The idea was to force me to draw everyday to see how my hand, lines and character were going to evolve.

Since I have been illustrating my daily situations, I realized how clumsy or blonde I can be sometimes. Sanguesita is a humorous journal playing with sarcasm, bad habits, and life experiences, which I hope people can relate to. It is my daily therapy and I hope you like it!
