My name's Alyssa, and I'm a cartoonist. Originally from Michigan, I've recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue work in illustration.

I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Film & Video and Animation, and have since been taking on freelance work for children's books, product design, portraits, and more, and I'm always ready to take on new challenges.

"Awww, that's sooooo cute!" is my all time favorite thing to hear about my own work. I take pride in bringing characters and situations to life in ways that are as soft and huggable as possible. I am an animal lover and strive to portray animals (even the human ones) in lighthearted, and relatable ways that evoke grins, "awwww"s, or laughs.

When I'm not drawing, you can find me watching terrible movies, listening to Mariah Carey, or questioning my decision as a pale, snow-loving Michigander to move to a place that regularly hits 100+ degrees and doesn't sell Vernors ginger ale.
