Tell us something about yourself?


Hello everyone! I am Vhane, the artist behind "Haranikala." I am a free-spirited type of person and I'm still in the middle of the gentle exploration of myself and everything around me. I also love learning and trying out different things that I believe are worth venturing for.

I love expressing my ideas and desires through art. I am always into peculiar, imperfect, and unimaginable things.


My friends and family don't even know I draw because I'm a very shy person and I'm too shy to tell them that I draw. But when I told and showed them my works, they're like "really??!" and I'm just like "meh, just kidding."


Where do you draw inspiration for your art?

My inspiration? Literally everything around me—from the things I feel, I see, or even the movies I've watched. My artworks are inspired by different random things or concepts that are just randomly popping out in my head—out of the blue. Sometimes my brain doesn’t stop thinking of ideas. I sometimes feel that my 2 brain cells are tired. But they don’t just stop.


I also love making Studio Ghibli fan arts. I've always been a fan of Hayao's creations. I'm inspired by the artist's creativity and appreciation for little mundane things. I am also inspired by different artists in the Philippines, Japan, and China.


Describe your art style?


Crispy and imperfect lines. I love creating unity between the thin and thicker lines. Sometimes I prefer it messy but sometimes I like it clean. I love using bold and striking colors in my artwork—it makes me feel like they’re stronger than me. I also love putting in unwanted details—it always makes up the whole.


Have you always wanted to become an artist?


Honestly, when I was a kid, having the thought of me being an artist is too far unimaginable. I am not even the one that the class chooses to be the representative for posters and slogan-making contests—but I never envied them, because I'm fully aware of my skills. I didn't even take an art-related course and did not even draw not until late 2020.

But ever since, I've always loved playing with my imagination and I have the biggest desire to unleash my creativity in different forms of art. I started making digital art just to free these ideas. After making one, I never stopped. I went back to studying the basics and watched different tutorials and lessons.


Then to my surprise, other artists, people, and even companies started to recognize my skill. That is when I realized that this is something I can be good at. It felt like I met a stranger within me. But I'm glad I met myself.


At first, it was just my desire to be free. Now, I want to be free and I want to be an artist.
