Vanessa Montano is a Detroit-based Illustrator who focuses on quirky and fun editorial work that consists of traditional inked lines and digital finishes. She has a BFA in Illustration from the College for Creative Studies. Vanessa’s work is often inspired by the strange world of pop culture as well as current events and the role it plays on us as individuals.
When not working on pieces, She enjoys petting her dog Daisy, thinking about food 24/7, watching hilariously bad movies, and trying to collect all of the moons in Mario Odyssey.
