My name is Joumana Medlej and I am a French-Lebanese artist, now based in London. I have a wide-ranging creative background including graphic design, illustration, comics, computer games, calligraphy, and traditional arts—plus a series of popular drawing tutorials.

My illustration work is now focused on the things I love the most: food, wildlife, and cultural diversity. Simple things that have filled my life with a magic I hope to pass on.

My designs are available on various products and in several publications, which you’ll find in my Shops. I am open for commissions: please contact me with your request.
