Lucy Engelman is an illustrator in the most traditional sense of the word. The Michigan-based image maker spends her days with dip pen and ink, rendering landscapes and animals from the natural world with scratchy anatomical precision. Inspired almost exclusively by the great American outdoors her work is littered with flora and fauna native to the USA, manifested in lifelike natural scenes, taxonomic drawings and laboriously detailed maps.
Having only recently graduated from the University of Michigan she’s had the good fortune to work for a great selection of print-based clients who clearly appreciate her traditional skill set and expert attention to detail.
