Hi, MY name is Karen Alleluia
and I’m a designer + illustrator in San Diego.
Some of my most prized pieces, both digital and traditional, were created to confront social injustices in America as well as environmental issues in my city and around the world. My work has gained recognition by Southwestern College, The Sun newspaper, and The Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.
Since 2017, I have been illustrating my two chihuahuas, Bandit and Fatboy, and their adventures as they travel the world and experience alternate universes together as brothers. Through these depictions, I want viewers to understand the importance of kin, what it means to help one another, and the beauty of going beyond our own bubbles.
If I’m not drawing, I’m getting tapped out at the Stronghold Jiu Jitsu in Point Loma or eating some authentic street tacos.
Your support, whether it be a Like on social media or a purchase made in my store, means the world to me. It allows me to continue doing what I love while providing the best care for my dogs. :)
