I’m not usually clown-themed [photo by Asa]


This site reflects a small selection of my work. For further illustration work check out my behance, or shoot me an email! Check out my Instagram for frequent updates.

I’m Chelsea (she/her), an illustrator and art director working from my house near a park in Brooklyn, New York. For the last few years you could find me at YouTube (via ASG) as an Art Director doing everything from total brand overhauls to the occasional one-off illustration ask. My background as a full-time in-house illustrator at both NPR and Gizmodo has turned me into a certified idea machine, always looking for the most clever way to solve a visual problem.

Starting off making gig posters for house shows in my Baltimore basement, my personal illustration practice has expanded its reach to include things like billboards, character designs, New York Times editorial pieces, and drawings of my friends’ pets. 

I love new projects! Especially ones involving gaming, LGBTQ pride, anime, the woods, dogs, music, and fashion, but I’m always up for a challenge.

Interested in a working together? Want me to chat with your class? Drop me an email! Say hello or just send me a pic of your dog. I’d love to talk :)
