My sister interviewed Lisanne, who does all the art for Facebook. It was a great interview and as soon as I read it, I knew who I wanted to interview! 😃 So many of you have let me know how much you love the dresses in Fashion Fever, so I am super happy to introduce you to Mariëtte, the very talented artist who designed them! Let’s give a shout out to her to thank her for all her fabulous work!

Love, Angela 💋

Mariette

What is your name?

Mariëtte Jacobs

What do you do for the Fabulous games?

I am one of three 2d Artists, I am mostly responsible for all the fashion designs Angela makes, like her dresses. Recently I also started to work on designing the customers, which I love to do!

How long have you been doing this?

For almost a year now! I joined GameHouse last summer and immediately started to work on Angela.

What is your favorite thing to shop for?

Mostly I collect books related to Art, this will help me to make even better dresses! But for fashion related items, I would say I have a soft spot for jewelry, especially rings and earrings.

Who is your favorite Fabulous character?

Angela!

With which Fabulous character do you relate the most?

I have to say Angela again! She and I are quite different but there is definitely an overlap in what we like. I just love how she is not afraid to be herself, although it isn’t always the best way to handle a situation. She is determent to get things done, they way she wants it. On top of that, her taste in crazy animal prints, bold colors and glitter is just fantastic!

If you could go on a shopping trip anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

That is a difficult question, there are so many interesting places to go. The first thing that will come to mind would be London or New York. I have never been to either place but I have heard that they both have a lot if interesting shopping opportunities!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I watch a lot of tv series, play games, read art related books and comics and I like to cook!

What is the best advice you have ever received?

That is a tough one. I have met a lot of inspiring people throughout my life. What I did learn from all these wonderful people around me: Fight for what you want even when the odds are against you. Be determined to get things done and never stop caring about the people around you!

What advice can you give to aspiring artists who want to do what you do?

Draw, draw and draw even more. If you want to be a professional artist, fight for it! There are so many people who have the same dreams you have and they are willing to fight for it! If this is really your passion, you will make it work. Never ever stop learning, start bugging everybody who has knowledge of art and start asking questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for feedback. Try to see feedback as a learning tool that will make your work better. Once you have embraced that, you will learn so much within a small period of time! Keep pushing your awesome Art work and you will get there!
