Photograph of illustrator Jui Talukder and artist Farhana Hossain, aka Dewmanna with her puppy dog, maltipoo Whisky

Jui Talukder, (formerly known as Farhana Hossain) grew up in Singapore, where she developed an interest in architecture, theatre and the visual arts. After graduating from architecture school and working for a year as an architectural designer, Farhana moved to New York to escape the tropical humidity (a decision she only lamented during her first ever snowstorm) to pursue animation.


She is now based off her studio in East Hartford, Connecticut where she finally gets to enjoy some greenery when she isn't staring at her Cintiq screen. Besides eating sandwiches with her dog, Whisky, Jui also works as an illustrator represented by IllustrationX and is the art director of Homunculus Studios.

Jui has worked for clients including Fannie Mae, Nickelodeon, Sprite, KSHMR, Sony BMG Asia,  Zammex, Bonnier Books UK and Best Buy.


"Jui is very professional in attitude and in creativity - she is a genius in color and design!"
