Melissa Pagluica (Pal--E--YOU--ka)

 

Hello! I'm a California illustrator and creator of the comic book series Above the Clouds (atcloudscomic.com).​ I work full time as an artist traveling to different conventions selling my self published works.

Weapon of choice:
CC Photoshop & Corel Painter, but love dabbling in mix media and ink.​

Likes:
Outside of art I'm a huge book reader, tea drinker, and I'm totally owned by my cat Lui. I'm in love with fairytales and stories that hold a bit of sadness (Last Unicorn fan). Avid Zelda player.

Commission status:
I am currently closed to project.
