About & Contact

In real life it’s Anita Mihalyi, but in the world of Creativity I go with Thubakabra. I am a Freelance Artist, and consequently my hobby is my job. Making illustrations, inspired works or designs for home decors what I do every day. My intention is to have as many experience as I can afford by doing daily sketches, artworks from my imagination next to commissioned works.

I’m always looking for new tasks, so if you have a job for me, just contact me with the help of the contact form below.


Short Story

My interest for graphics started to grow around 2005, one year before High School: next to my studies I began to be more familiar with Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablet. In 2008 I left school to have enough time to stretch out this new acquaintance.
For a long time my favorite tool was my pencil and first, - as so many another self-taught creator - I was seeking the mastery of photorealism. But after a while I wanted something else, I got bored with photorealism. So with the already known basics I put more time into digital painting and to this day this love is still strong. This feeling makes me a good Freelance Artist.
From 2013, I began to know more the world of illustration making, how to put my creativity into my arts. I know for now there is no top of the knowledge mountain I can climb on. Life is full of learning possibilities and it would be such a waste to miss out any opportunity of that. That is why I am good at learning new things, new software and how to combine them for having the best result, what I am constantly looking for.

Life as Freelance Artist

As a Freelance Artist, my main income comes from two sources.
I do custom artworks or designs based on customer needs. This can mean a lot of type of artworks: mainly I do custom portraits, sometimes covers for books or albums. I’ve been in several game projects as an Illustrator. Some of my artworks made to be on products like discs, or T-shirts.
The secondary income based on my Home Decor shop which for I make designs. You can find my designs on wall tapestries, throw pillows, rugs etc. That makes me good in many other areas: basic marketing and customer service.

Software, tools I use

Most of the time Adobe Photoshop is the favorite software I like to use. It's brilliant, I have everything to make new paintings. For vector graphics, I use Illustrator, and Inkscape. When I struggle with an object, Blender helps to figure that out, so I have a very basic 3D knowledge as well.
When it is about traditional art, I use graphite pencil tools for realistic artworks. Sometimes I have the lust for watercolor painting too, more rarely I paint with oil.

Where can you find more artworks of mine

There are many sites I use to submit my works and other stuff.
The most important page (that is not this site) is my Facebook Page. There are a lot of important updates. Follow me there to see my newest artworks.
Prints and home decors are available in my Etsy shop and Brandless Artist Webshop.

That's all.
