Melany is a Character designer and illustrator, from Caracas Venezuela, living in Burbank, California. She graduated at the Instituto de diseño de caracas, and then attended three terms at Concept design academy in California. She’s currently working as a Illustrator and character designer at Age of learning in Glendale CA and also doing independent work selling her art and products.
We saw her work through the CTNX event in which she has been going for the last 4 years to network, meet more people and sell her art. Coming from Venezuela, she had to go through many obstacles in order to get to this point. Which was one of the reasons why we felt identified with her and I have no doubts we will see more amazing things coming from her in the future.
