Venus Bambisa is a freelance illustrator, concept artist, graphic designer and motion graphic animator from South Africa. Her character designs are from another planet and include some of the coolest elements of sci-fi and fantasy. You can see her influence on Kolanut Productions’ Red Origins comic on which she was tasked with character designs, illustrations and pitch bibles.
Her Instagram bio says she tries to create things that she feels are cool and boy are they cool.
