My name is Alyssa Lee.

I am a designer and illustrator living and working in the Chicago area.

In 2009, I began freelancing independently, creating pieces for local bands and companies. I found work through a creative agency as well, leading me to work with some awesome companies, such as Redbox, XSport Fitness, and United Airlines.

Outside of work, I spend a lot of time drawing comics, experiencing the Chicago art and music scene with Midwest Action, and thinking about cats. I really enjoy cats.

I created Midwest Action in June of 2011 to expose and connect Midwestern artists and musicians. Along with designing the website, logo, and various posters, I coordinate the blog section, plan events, and screenprint Midwest Action brand t-shirts. If you’re interested in getting involved, please introduce yourself.

I am available for freelance work and love taking on new challenges.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to work together.
