Eugenia Mello is a latin-american, Brooklyn-based illustrator and graphic designer from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

She studied Graphic Design at the University of Buenos Aires, where she also taught Design and Typography courses for several years.

Her work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, The Art Director’s Club of New York, Latin American Illustration, The Society of Illustrators of LA, Creative Quarterly and 3x3 Magazine.

She is passionate about rhythm, movement and feelings, and uses color and shape to translate into drawing the things that are difficult to put into words. She is always hoping to get music out of her images.
