My name is Sanya. I'm a freelance and comic artist originally from Winnipeg, but currently based out of Toronto, Canada.
As a freelancer, I take on a variety of art-related projects -- everything from concept sketches to full-fletched illustrations. All of my work I do from start to finish: that includes penciling, inking, and coloring. Check out my portfolio for some examples of my work and my process. If you're interested in working with me on a project, shoot me an email. I'd be glad to provide you with a quote, or answer any other questions you might have.
Outside of my freelance work, I focus full-time on my very own comic book: 1001.
As of yet, the best place to catch me in person or to buy my comics/prints are at comic cons and trade shows. I'm currently scheduled to appear at the following upcoming shows:
- Ottawa Comic Con (May 10-12, 2013 @ Ottawa, Ontario)
- Big Wow ComicFest (May 18-19, 2013 @ San Jose, California)
If you're planning on attending any of these shows, stop by and say hello! :)
"1001" is my reimagining of the life of Scherezade: the cunning heroine of the original tale "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights." Issue #1 can be downloaded for free (!!!) at the links below, or purchased at comic cons and trade shows. Look out for Issue #2 in May, 2013!

Caught between political intrigue by day and a mad, murderous king by night, Scherezade must use her wit and wild imagination to survive. Here are just a few of the characters that you can expect to meet along the way:
Our cunning heroine.
Younger sister to Scherezade.
An arrogant student of alchemy.
The charming ambassador.
The less-than-friendly advisor to the king.
An eccentric recluse.
