Karen Alleluia is a Filipina-American illustrator who inspires learning and positivity through her charming character designs. She hopes her stories will empower people of all ages to stay strong in tough times and to be more kind to one another. Her illustrative style is the result of bingeing 90s cartoons and video games and frequently disappearing into her ever-growing collection of children's books. Karen has worked with Scholastic, GoFundMe, Mingei International Museum, Museum of Contemporary Arts SD, lululemon, and Domestika among others. You can support her book illustrations and character designs by becoming a patron on Patreon or by shopping her art merch online (www.kluia.co).
