New York-based freelance artist and illustrator Arielle Jovellanos (Fresh Romance) is best known for her detailed work using a splashy palette of vibrant colors.

Growing up in close proximity to the wealth of Broadway musicals on the Great White Way, she was steeped in the culture of the stage from an early age. Influenced by her intense love of musical theater, she kickstarted Ladies of Literature, and even crafted the #Ham4Pamphlet zine for the cast and crew of Hamilton: An American Musical.


SYFY WIRE sat down with the ebullient creator to watch her draw Eliza Hamilton and learn how she brings the character's emotions to life through her hand, what it was like the first time she saw the Hamilton musical, moderating her pencils and inks, and getting to go backstage after posting some of her distinctive cartoon-style fan art.
