About

I'm an artist and illustrator currently living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. I spent the last 10 years or so living in Chicago, New York, and China.

I have a passion for world-building and storytelling -- probing the depths of imaginary places, exploring their forgotten corners, and putting my findings onto the page. Narrative, mythos, and character are all crucial to my work.

My technique uses thoughtful mark-making to render exquisite detail, and creates a lush and atmospheric tone through dense textures and otherworldly color palettes. I find my inspiration among dusty tomes, The Gothic and Baroque, ancient lore, 16-bit video games, and perfume. 

I'm open to commissions, exhibitions, and collaborations. Email me at: marcygallegos@gmail.com
