The Handcrafted Story

The Handcrafted Story

Anika Lacerte is the artist and creator of The Handcrafted Story. She is an illustrator and surface pattern designer based near Victoria, BC, Canada, on the unceded traditional territories of the T’Sou-ke and Scia’new Nations.

She has been drawing every day since 2016. Sometimes she draws on photos in the Procreate App. You can see what that looks like on Instagram, and learn how to do it yourself in my video class.

Sometimes she turns her daily drawings into vinyl stickers, postcards or repeat patterns. She also makes printables to inspire your creativity and story-telling.

In her work, she wants to create meaningful, encouraging messages. She uses simple, hand-drawn shapes and clean lines. Her ideal projects include surface pattern design, hand lettering, and greeting cards.
