Based in the Twin Cities, I’m an illustrator who hand-draws everything and loves cats.

I’m Jeanna, a cartoonist and illustrator based in Minnesota. I'm a SCAD 2017 Illustration alum with five years of industry experience. I create intricate designs using classical techniques and modern tools across various mediums. My textural, inky dream worlds are inspired by manga and the vibrant DIY subcultures of the 80s and 90s.

My expertise is in fantasy book cover art, products and apparel, and slice-of-life comics, and I’m actively seeking new projects in those industries. I’m also an experienced portrait artist. Crafting something special for unique stories and spaces is my lifelong passion. If you are seeking art with a rock-and-roll edge and a whimsical, surreal sense of humor, please enjoy checking out my site and email me with any and all questions.
