Hello! My name is Anna and I'm an animator and illustrator working in Minneapolis MN. Lots of different things live on this blog - things I've done for my job, personal projects, and of course - knitting!

I am available for sketch & illustration commissions! Shoot me an email at annafleissner@gmail.com for more info!

So I finally got time to record another SKETCHY (a weekly drawing vlog)! This week I went to my old fall back and doodled a stylish lady. Also I’m going to be taking a plein air oil painting class in a few weeks and I’m so excited!



Another gif I did about a month ago in honor of summer. I could go for some ice cream right now…

Lack of sleep made this incredibly funny.

My latest knit creation. A knit shawl/kerchief/scarf thing. With tassels! I worked crazy-late last night so I’m gunna wait until I’ve slept before I model it. It turned out much smaller than I expected but I think that ups the cute-factor. :)
Yarn is Madeline Tosh in Antique Lace. I love it sooo much and I have a whole nother skein!

I was inspired by the eyeshadow sample from my Birchbox this month. Of course the glitter ended up all over my face and I felt like a fairy. I think I’m ok with that though.

It was really bothering me how dark the line work was so I tweaked it to be a brighter pink! Muuuch better.

Unfortunately I won’t be uploading a SKETCHY today. Work just got a bit too crazy over the weekend and I ran out of time Sunday night. Here’s a little doodle I managed to squeeze in while waiting for renders though!

Something really awesome happened on my block this weekend! So I doodled about it in this week’s SKETCHY (my weekly doodle-vlog).

I’m getting much more comfortable talking with the camera. The butterflies are still there but definitely not as distracting. I’m really happy the practice is paying off!



A gif I made for my bf’s birthday that I meant to post ages ago! It’s a dancing ikea radish if you’re wondering… It’s an inside joke. Dun worry ‘bout it.
