I am Elizabeth Russo, an illustrator, designer, paper engineer and everything in between. My work explores my Thai-American identity to the diversities in nature. Currently, I work as a graphic designer in the Chicagoland area and a volunteer illustrator for Face Equality International.


I have a BFA in Illustration and a Minor in Southeast Asian Studies from Northern Illinois University.


My favorite decompression activities are Folkorlico dancing, making comics, reading about face equality and disability, and creating pop-up cards for my friends.
