Hello! I'm Lauren, a Filipino-American illustrator based in NYC.
Currently: Illustrating Remy Lai's YA Graphic Novel, The Demon's Prince (Spring 2026)
Previous collaborations: Hachette, Walker Books, CLASS101, TourBox, Studio Drydock's Wylde Flowers, AthraPlay Podcast
As an independent artist, I enjoy illustrating for book covers/interiors, collaborative zines, and commissions. I love telling vibrant diverse stories of romance and magic, and it is my dream to bring relatable queer Filipino protagonists into the graphic novel world.
Outside of drawing, I can be found reading tarot cards for friends, escaping into anime and manga, or flailing on roller skates somewhere.
For all book project inquiries, I am proudly represented by Marietta B. Zacker at Gallt & Zacker Literary Agency. marietta@galltzacker.com.

Thank you!
