Hi! I'm Aster D'Amico!

I'm a Queer Illustrator living near Detroit, Michigan, who loves all things tea, historical fashion, fantasy, and horror! I enjoy writing and illustrating comics, which I find to be an incredibly powerful vehicle for storytelling; my main medium of choice is Digital, but I also very much love using watercolor and Ink Wash.

I graduated with a BFA in Illustration and a minor in Creative Writing from the Columbus College of Art & Design in 2016, and have been freelancing since.
