Hello! My name is Alisha Richardson. I am a digital and traditional artist who enjoys character design and concept art. When I'm working traditionally, I'm fond of ink, markers, and occasionally acrylic paints. My artwork is inspired by dark nature and fantasy elements with a focus on characters. My illustrations are often influenced by my numerous other creative interests, including cosplaying, sewing, creating Special FX make-up looks, sculpting, and wearing J-fashion.
I just graduated from high school and I have been attending Kalamazoo Valley Community College throughout high school, where I have been studying animation. I hope to transfer to Kendall College of Art and Design in the future to pursue a BA in illustration. My current most notable achievements include winning Best in Show at KVCC’s 2018 Digital Art Showcase, being awarded a portfolio scholarship to KCAD, and being GRCC’s 2020/2021 Cover Artist winner.
