Hey! I’m Ludi.

I am a Guatemalan-Slovak illustrator and writer.

I was born in Canada, raised in the rainy, Pacific Northwest and am now based between Los Angeles and Scandinavia.

My work explores the human condition—particularly our inner worlds—and is characterized by warm, vibrant colors, whimsical human figures, and motifs from the natural world.

I’m currently pursuing a Master in Visual Communication. My thesis project is an illustrated memoir. 

If you are interested in working together, please get in touch via the email below.
