I’m a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, and apparel graphics designer. I have so many areas of interest regarding design and I haven’t met a project that wasn’t challenging and fun in one way or another. Please contact me if you have any questions, need a designer, or a design consultation. Thank you! Marissa Luca
