Oh, hey there!
My name is Lissy Marlin, nice to meet you!
I'm an award winning, NYT best selling illustrator from Dominican Republic with a simple mission: bring a little bit of magic to everyday life, one piece of art at a time!
In previous years I've played the role of Lead Artist at a toy company called GoldieBlox, a small start-up in San Francisco dedicated to inspire the next generation of female engineers.
Presently, I spend my days as freelance illustrator from my home in Philadelphia. My work ranges from character design and background painting for animation, to picture books and fun middle grade novels such as Neil Patrick Harris's The Magic Misfits Series.
Every day I look for new ways to challenge myself and my work a little bit and I look forward to projects full of color and adventure. I aspire to make every project a fun experience for myself and everyone involved.
Here is hoping for new opportunities in 2021!
I've been incredibly lucky to have given the opportunity to showcase my work at
Light Grey Art Lab.
My small solo show called Daydreams takes inspiration from my previous travels across Japan. With this show I hope to share a little bit of the love I feel for the country as well as sending positive vives out to the world for 2021.
