Illustration & Visual Development

Hey there! I'm Shakeh Aslanyan. Raised in an Armenian household by two immigrant parents, I quickly learned the importance of maintaining a strong connection to my roots and my family, themes which resonate heavily in my artwork. As an Armenian-American illustrator who grew up on stories, poems, and legends from my culture, I continue to gather inspiration from the tales that captivated my mind and my heart as a child. My art journey thus far has been one of extreme curiosity and exploration, lending itself to my love of illustrating zany characters, playing around with textures and color in my backgrounds, and finding as many different mediums to get my stories across as possible. Whether it is working in-house collaboratively with other creatives, freelancing for publishing, or designing album artwork for one of my countless favorite bands, I am beyond excited to see what the rest of my art journey will hold.
