Karla Alcazar is a narrative illustrator, currently based in Mexico, where she was born and raised. She grew up among books and pencils and despite of her desire to become an illustrator, she ended up graduating with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. A couple of years later, she was planning on doing a Master’s in clinical psychology but moved to Boston instead where she did an Illustration for the children’s market course at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. After this experience, she decided to pursue her life-long dream and moved to England to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Illustration. Currently, Karla is a freelance illustrator who sources inspiration from Japanese graphic novels, magic realism and other forms of literature. Her work centers around the exploration of characters in the context of seemingly everyday situations. She would love to see her work on a book cover and travel the world.
