About Djamila Knopf


My name is Djamila and I am here to make art. I'm inviting you to join me and become a member of my Patreon community. I strongly believe in the idea of bringing creators and fans closer together. If you want to see the face behind the art, this is me chatting about art and social media on my favourite web show.

But why should you support me? Well, as a kid I was obsessed with 90s anime shows (above all, Sailor Moon and The Vision of Escaflowne) and everything else that had a fantastic twist to it. My drawings are an accumulation of these early influences. So if you enjoy these things too, this might just be the right place for you.

I mainly work digitally, but also have an ongoing series of small traditional drawings that I'm selling through my online store. If you want to see more of my process, take a look at my Youtube channel.


I'm continuously working on my personal project Phantasma that is very dear to me. Through illustrations, I'm exploring hidden places in a post-apocalyptic, mythical world. You can read more about it here.
I'm also creating a deck of tarot cards. Instead of making the illustrations dark and gloomy, I have chosen a different approach with more vibrant lighting and colour palettes. I'm starting with the Minor Arcana (Wands, Pentacles, Cups, Swords) and I'll be saving the Major Arcana for last. There are 78 cards in the deck. You can browse the collection by clicking the tag finished artwork or visit my website.


If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. I'm always open for advice on art, illustration and everything that has do with it. So don't hesitate to drop me a message. You're supporting me, so the least I can do is share my knowledge in return. :]

I'm hosting semi-regular Patreon-only livestreams with my amazing fellow artists Kim Myatt, Lorena Lammer and Chantal Horeis. We do critiques and topical chats. Just browse the livestream tab on the left to get the links.

And of course, the rewards that you can see on the right. I'm hoping that offering insight into my process helps you with your own art or at least brings you a bit of joy. If you've missed any of the previous rewards, you can get them here.


If you decide to pledge to my Patreon, you're not being charged right away. Let's say you sign up some time in March. You'll first be charged on 1 April and you will receive your rewards shortly after that. I'm sending them out via direct message to protect the content from being pirated.

If I hit this goal, I'll be able to make a living just through Patreon. No middle man, no depending on freelance work. Just you, me, and art.
