Hey, I’m Ludi. I am a Guatemalan-Slovak illustrator and writer born in Canada, raised in the U.S., and now based between there and Scandinavia.

My work explores identity and the human condition and is characterized by whimsical human figures, warm vibrant colors, and motifs from the natural world.

If you are interested in working together, please send me an email.
