Cal Sparrow

Illustrator San Diego, CA


I am a self taught artist from Puget Sound, currently residing in San Diego, CA. I most enjoy creating character work that communicates emotionally with the viewer, and I strive to do this through subtle and subconscious cues in the image: eye contact, body language, the angle of the mouth. Whether the subject is human, an animal, or a fantastical creature, it is always my intention to leave the viewer with the feeling that this subject exists within a greater universe and has a personal history.

I am available for both commercial contracts and personal commissions, and would be happy to work with you!
