My name is Melissa Pagluica (Pal-E-You-KAH)
I'm a full time artist that works on stories and Illustration while traveling to different comic conventions. I recently had a successful Kickstarter that raised $43,000 with over 1000 backers for my graphic novel Above the Clouds. It was originally a biweekly webcomic that updated for 5 years before being turned into a book. My background includes work as a cover artist for Boom! Studios, Vault Comics, Committed Comics, and illustration for the online magazine Strange Horizons.
MY PASSION: I looooove stories. As a kid, I fell in love with animations such as The Sea Prince & the Fire Child, The Last Unicorn, and Sailor Moon. Stories that take you on a grand adventure, but hold a little bit of sadness -- the kind that pull at your heart strings and make you cry ugly tears.
My goal is to become a better storyteller. I have a long journey ahead of me, but I hope you enjoy the ones I've created so far!
I'm represented by the amazing Britt Siess of Britt Siess Creative Management.
