“Growing up in Mexico has definitely had an influence on my use of color; I’m always inspired by my surroundings and my culture even without making it consciously. At the moment, I am particularly interested in figurative art because I find the human body fascinating. I like that my characters have their own personalities and that people can relate to them somehow."

Ana Leovy is a Mexican artist based in Cancun, who mainly works with gouache, oils and colored pencils. She is passionate about celebrating diversity through her work, weaving stories through shapes and colors, inspired by feelings, dreams and everyday life. Her art intends to represent strong, confident characters living in vibrant worlds which are often a fusion between real life and her imagination. She plays with the disruption of the human form to reveal her view on both internal and external beauty.

"The inspiration behind my art is in little hidden love notes to my mixed-raced, Chinese-Latina heritage. To celebrate what being Latina means to me, that our identity cannot be defined as just one thing, that all our heritage is mixed together from our backgrounds, experiences and family structures."

Mariery Young is a Chinese-Latina artist from tropical Panama who works out of Mezclao, the name of her design studio. Her artwork embodies her love for plants and is composed of bold color combos, 80s–90s references and a tropical lifestyle. She focuses on brand identity, illustration and pattern design—always finding the perfect color combination. Her striking color schemes and rainforest backdrops can be found in projects for clients including Adobe, Instagram, InVision, Nike and Facebook.

"Early on in my career, I was motivated by the lack of representation of Latinx/BIPOC/LGBTQIA voices in comics. I wanted to share my experiences and was inspired to add more nuance to the conversation. I still aim to do that with my work, I believe because it is my work, it is intrinsically colorful, Latinx and queer. But I think I strive to constantly make whatever makes pop culture ‘universal’ and potent even more human and relatable. I like to draw about love, romance, mundane feelings and small moments on a daily basis because I feel like that’s what life is mostly made of."

Carina Guevara (she/her) is a Latinx editorial illustrator and comic book artist based out of Austin, Texas. Carina’s artwork exists at the intersection of the geek and Latinx experience.

"For inspiration I just start drawing, start doodling and see what comes out. You might end up doing lines and scribbles, but that might also be the start of something unique, a cool pattern or a character that emerges from a weird shape that was just drawn."
