Olivia de Castro is an illustrator and graphic designer. She grew up in a Dominican-Colombian family in New Jersey and graduated from Pratt Institute with a degree in Communications Design. She has designed for companies like Abrams Books, Scholastic, Pintrill, and Okayplayer.
Olivia's illustration style combines bold traditional line work and bright color palettes. People-watching on the subway while living in Brooklyn fueled her love for culturally diverse and expressive characters in storytelling. She likes long walks on the beach and binging true crime documentaries.
Awards: Barbara Johnson Art Scholarship, Pratt Institute Presidential Merit Scholarship
