The well-known adage “You are what you eat” might be true for some, but for illustrator Ana Strumpf, “You are what you draw” seems a much better fit. The Brazilian native, who spends her time between her homeland and New York City, has become well known for repurposing anything from magazine covers, editorial pages, and even canvas bags to add a surge of color and, at times, even movement. With a unique style that puts a refreshing spin on the fashion world, it’s no surprise the illustrator herself is a refreshing and colorful personality, as evidenced from the illustrations she made to answer our questions.
