Vika Haimov is an illustrator, doodler, and cartoon enthusiast living in California's Bay Area. She graduated University of Silicon Valley (formerly Cogswell Polytechnical College) in 2018 for 3D Animation, and has experience in traditional mediums including sketching and painting (Acrylics, Watercolors, etc) as well as digital mediums (Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI, Autodesk Maya).
As a teacher, Vika takes pride in fostering a comfortable environment for all audiences. It's her personal philosophy that while art (like any skill!) requires patience and practice, the process should be enjoyable, too. So long as students come away from the class having fun AND learned something new, the job's been done right.
Vika is the author of the Teen Manga curriculum.
