"Anastasia is a talented illustrator with a style that is at once beautiful, elegant, playful and charming. She created a series of nine detailed illustrations of David Bowie through his career within days of his death for an interactive capturing his different looks and styles, a highlight of our creative collaboration. Her fairy tale illustrations remain among the most beautiful pieces CNN has published, and, like the Bowie portraits, were created at breaking news speed."
