My name is Juliana Miller and I am a self-taught artist living in North Pole, Alaska. Visit me at any of the events listed above to see the cuteness in person.
Blobs originated one day in middle school Biology class while I was looking under a microscope. We were tasked with drawing what we saw under the microscope and labeling the parts. I did not care much for science but I certainly loved drawing, so I drew the amoebic shape I saw and decided to add eyeballs and a smiley face. That day in school, the blob was born. It was pretty cute, so I continued drawing them in other classes as well. With small adjustments and accessories, blobs were easily customizable. Soon, I was drawing my classmates and teachers as blobs.
Fast forward a few years, I got a degree in Advertising from the University of Idaho, moved back to Alaska and began work as a graphic designer. I got married, freelanced illustrations and design commissions, had twins, and still felt the "draw" of the blobs. With the experiences I'd gained through my professional and personal life, I formed the business of blobs.
