We put 5 Questions to Anthi from Goldflower Illustrations...
Q) What’s the secret origin story of Goldflower Illustrations and how did it all come together?
My passion for story telling and the creation of original characters is what made Goldflower illustrations come to life. The name goldflower is the translation of my own name and also represents my love for naturalistic patterns and bright colours which are inbeded in to my artwork.
Q) What inspires you to create?
Everyday feelings, incidents from my own life and others and the need to promote a positive attitude towards life.
Q) Since you started, what moment has been your highlight so far?
In 2011 my illustrations was featured in a comic book who was shared to various primary schools as a part of a campaign advocating political refugees.
Q) This is your first year at True Believers, what can people expect to find at your table on the day?

Q) If you could pick one line that inspires you from a comic or nerd culture as your life motto, which would you choose?
