Mel is a Miami born, Chicago based, Latinx comic creator and illustrator. They love drawing minorities and art that their younger self needed while growing up, including hispanic main characters, non-binary characters, and bodies of all shapes and sizes. Mel’s work is largely inspired by LGBT and Hispanic experiences, and is focused in graphic storytelling with themes that help highlight minority lifestyles. It is their goal to ensure that their illustrations help people who are not often represented feel a little less alone and a lot more love. Mel is illustrating Pillow Talk, a YA graphic novel for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt due out in 2023 and looks forward to writing and illustrating more books for young adults.
