Hi there! I'm Rosa De Los Reyes and I'm an illustrator/geek living in the Bay Area. I spend my time working as a barista at my local coffee shop and creating in my free time. im obsessed with Funko Pop toys, The Twilight Zone, Tim Burton, Simon Pegg, Rupauls Dragrace & everything kawaii/weird! which have all inspired me and my art one way or another. You can find me walking around the nearest comic convention, drinking an iced coffee or simply on Instagram #thouartrosa where I post all my art work!
Have you always been creative and artistic?
Definitely! Way back when I was younger I found myself excessively doodling. Drawing most of my inspiration from Sailor Moon! I was obsessed with creating my own characters. What kind of hair she would have, clothes, picking my own colors. That's what fascinated me! I knew back then that being an artist is what I had to be!
How would you describe the style of your work?
I'd like to think I have more than one style. I'm highly inspired by so many things around me that my art doesn't just stick to one thing. My art can be girly and pretty, fun and quirky, dark and humorous. I love creating anything that comes to mind!
What’s in your pencil case and what’s your favorite tool?
A bunch of pens, markers, watercolor brushes, xacto knife, etc. my favorite tool to use are my fine tip pens!
Who is your favorite superhero?
Storm! she's always been my favorite since I was younger. She's so bad ass!
If you could have one super power what would it be?
Since I am afraid of heights, I'm ruling flying out of the picture. I'd like the power of just straight up magic. Merlin status!
Where do you look for inspiration?
My life, people around me, movies, cartoons, pop art!
Who are your favorite artists or comic book authors?
Ah, so many! My tops are: Christopher DeLorenzo, Liana Hee, Danny Brito, Tim Burton and Tuesday Bassen!
