Sabine Buhain

Illustration and Animation - BA (Hons)

I'm Sabine Buhain, an animator and illustrator born in the Philippines who studied BA (Hons) Illustration & Animation at Cambridge School of Art.

You know when you’re a kid and you spend all of your time drawing pictures because your imagination’s going wild? Well, I never stopped. As a self-taught illustrator, I juggled the creative arts with my STEM-focused high school classes, balancing precariously on an academic tightrope. It wasn’t until I travelled to the UK at 17 that I got a shot at learning art for real.

I love bursts of colour, playing with whitespace, bold lines, high fantasy, surrealism, the occasional four-panel comic, and breathing life into my characters. The art I make always has a story behind it, whether it’s lighthearted and silly or deeply immersive. Now that I’ve finally finished university, I'm looking to join the UK's creative industries as an animator, illustrator or visual designer.
