Hey! I’m Tamara.
I'm currently a Senior Art Director at Saatchi & Saatchi working on a range of clients like Pampers, Gillette, Mr. Clean, etc.
Below you can find a drawing I did of myself reimagined as my favorite childhood cartoon, Mojo Jojo from The Powerpuff Girls. Slightly improved, he now has my crazy hair, glasses, and favorite beanie. Aside from the big wings and angry expression, this is pretty much how I look. 
I’ve managed to make it to this point in my career without coffee, but I’d be happy to grab tea if you’d like to chat. Say hello at tamara.e.yakov@gmail.com or on LinkedIn!
