About + Contact



My name is Maria Anjanelle Javelona but I go by the nickname my mother gave me, “Anja.” I'm a Manila born, Toronto based illustrator and designer that loves to solve visual problems.

When I am not drawing, I like to travel, practice my archery, salsa and watch a lot of animal videos.

Feel free to contact me to collaborate on a project or say hi!
