Johanna Basford Saving the Fate of Drawing

Johanna is an illustrator and ink evangelist who prefers pens and pencils to pixels. Following graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee Johanna set-up a little studio and began on a unique mission to vanquish the vector and to save the fate of drawing!
