Hey, I'm Arielle! I'm a freelance illustrator, comic artist, and art educator based just outside of NYC.
I make narrative illustrations, usually with very fashionable young people wearing clothes I wish I had. My comic work has been featured in the Eisner and Harvey nominated anthology Fresh Romance, among other publications.
In my free time, I organize collaborative zine projects, including the Hamilton: An American Musical themed #Ham4Pamphlet and the Kickstarted Ladies of Literature: Volume 2 (co-organized with my good friend, Janet Sung.)
I also help young writers make graphic novels at Writopia, an awesome non-profit that runs creative writing workshops for kids and teens.
Outside of work, I love sitcoms, showtunes, superheroes, succulents, sartorialism, and storytelling structure. (Also alliteration, apparently.)
