Hi! I'm Lee Dawn, a freelance illustrator, in-house graphic designer, and general public menace currently haunting the Sacramento area. I create illustrations for books, games, and other miscellany for both companies and independent creators. I also produce my own projects, such as Root People

I create my colorful illustrations in watercolor, gouache, ink, and Adobe Creative Suite. Folklore, animals, and produce inspire much of my work. 
 

When not painting, I can also be found peddling my wares at various conventions, drinking espresso by the pot, or hiking in dubiously hike-able locations. 
Want to Work Together?
