Hello!

I'm Zeynep B. Aktan, I'm the creator of Picamimi and the one who draws these good looking characters.

I was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1978. I spent part of my childhood in San Francisco, USA and part of my adulthood in Basel, Switzerland. I currently live in Istanbul with my family.

I am, by education, a Biologist and I worked in the Pharmaceutical industry from graduation to this point on. I was always interested in Art and certainly had the genes for it, which passed on from my father who was an artist. So I started to draw my Picamimi characters for friends and family and posted some examples on Instagram. One day I got a phone call from the most delightful person, asking me if I was willing to draw a special picture for a special occasion, which followed by a couple of more orders. That's when I decided to share Picamimi and my wish to draw you, with the rest of the world.
