Hello, my name is Manda Comisari.
I create detailed illustrations painted in gouache on paper. I enjoy painting animals and I usually include an element of humor in my work, whether that means playing off a creatures natural characteristics or putting them in a funny hat. My illustrations are always sincere and sweet-natured, as I think the world could use more of that.
My client list includes Black Olive Studios, Fortune Magazine, The Bark Magazine, Petcurean Pet Nutrition, and Subplot Design Studios.
My work has been recognized by International Artists Magazine, The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, Best of Artists, The Pent Awards, BuzzFeed, The Creativity Awards, and the 2017 AOI World Illustration Awards.
I currently live in the United Kingdom where I am completing a Masters of Fine Art in Illustration at the University of Edinburgh.
I am a Leopold Schepp Foundation Scholar.
Please contact me for questions, commissions, or just to say hello. I look forward to hearing from you!
