  • Itís impossible not to love the comic book style of Arielle Jovellanos. Fresh and light in tone, itís set to take the graphic novel aesthetic into all sorts of new areas and Arielle is clearly an artist with a passion for visual storytelling.

    Her big breakthrough came with her 2015 high school romance School Spirit Ė 60 pages of high quality artwork. The publication received an Eisner nomination, which is the pinnacle in the world of comics. Today the artist is working with a range of top names in publishing, and looking for new people to collaborate with bringing stories to life.

    A Filipina-American, Arielle grew up watching Disney movies and drawing her own variations on Sailor Moon in the margins of her schoolbooks. Today, she loves musical theatre, collects playbills, and her biggest influences are the manga artist Rumiko Takahashi, the book Howlís Moving Castle, and Studio Ghibliís movie Kikiís Delivery Service.

    Arielle graduated from Parsons The New School for Design with a dual degree in Illustration and Fiction writing in 2014.

    Most of Arielleís work is entirely digital Ė she sketches, draws the lines and colours her images on her Cintiq tablet. Pinks, blues and purples form her main palette.

    Everything is a characterí is a piece of advice that guides Arielleís comic art style. It means she focuses on creating tiny narratives within each image, using body language, facial expression, clothing and background detail. This builds personality in her work and makes people viewing it wonder what will happen next.
