Mikella Touchstone Art

The portfolio of Mikella Touchstone, Illustrator & Concept Artist

I am an Illustrator and Concept Artist with an education in Video Game Design. With my passion for storytelling, I love delving into character-driven games and graphic novels and understand the importance of bringing worlds to life through art. Although I’m a 2D Artist, I am familiar with a variety of 3D software commonly used in the industry and how they work together with the 2D world. I have experience working as an Art Director where I managed small teams and helped guide the artistic vision for the project. I will happily work on a team or solo and embrace learning and growing within my craft. Please feel free to contact me for either freelance projects or full-time positions. I look forward to helping bring the next world to life!
