This is Duru! I’m an Istanbul based illustrator.

After graduated from Dogus University, Department of Graphics with the 1st degree of the faculty in 2013, I’ve finally gained my MA degree from Yeditepe University in 2017. Later that, I am chosen for Pictoplasma Academy on 2017 September and since that day I’m a part of the Magic Tea Society!

I’m working as a freelancer, also I created my own brand called Happy Marker for my graduation project that I make cute brooches, tote bags, shoes..etc for fun. At the same time, I give workshops about painting textiles with stamp making, lino-cut and drawing. Also I create some ceramic works like sculptures, plates and boards for a year.

I have a Behance portfolio that you can find my early works also. And you’d probably love my tumblr ifeellikehalfbakedcookie which i draw my daily feelings with quick doodles.
