Melanie Mikecz

Melanie Mikecz is a freelance illustrator originally from Wisconsin currently living and working from San Francisco. She specializes in a mixed media style that's sophisticated to appeal to adults and cheerful to be liked by kids. She earned a B.F.A in Visual Communications from the Washington University School of Art in St. Louis. Since graduating in 2004, Melanie has worked as an illustrator and designer in Boston, London and San Francisco. Her clients include American Greetings, GAP, Hallmark, Land of Nod, Mudpuppy, Papyrus to name a few.

I love the simplicity of the geometric shapes, bold patterns and the bright color palette in the animal illustrations. I adore them all but my very favorite are the owl and the hippo! To see more of her work, visit her store online where she has over a hundred prints to sell starting at $22 only!
