I’m Jeanna, a 2017 SCAD Illustration graduate and published cartoonist.

During my five years of industry experience, I have provided comics and illustrations for brands, publishers, musicians, and private clients alike. As a resident artist at two Savannah, GA bookstores, I made retail sales of my original merchandise and answered questions about my artistic experience with visitors.

My expertise is in fantasy book cover art, portraiture, and slice-of-life comics. I’m actively seeking new projects in those industries as well as food & beverage label art. If you are seeking art with a rock-and-roll edge and a whimsical, surreal sense of humor, send me an email. We can start crafting something special for your unique story.

My goal is to create intricate designs using classical techniques and digital tools. My textural, inky dream worlds are inspired by manga and the vibrant DIY subcultures of the 80s and 90s. Based in the Twin Cities, you can find me at local comic cons and art markets talking excitedly about cats.
