Alicia Cardell is a Queer Taiwanese-American Illustrator from the Bay Area, CA. With a passion for handcrafting engaging spaces, she founded a small business Buppydogs shortly after graduating from California College of the Arts in 2018.
Growing up, anime and manga played a significant role influencing her artistic style and passion. In her body of work she's integrated distinct visual elements of her childhood while incorporating personal narratives about mental health and inner growth. Today she prioritizes the development of her artistic voice in her small business while balancing her career as an arts instructor.
