Naomi Romero

Illustrator Columbus, OH

Character Designer and Illustrator who loves animals and shapes!

Hi! I am a Mexican/ Puerto Rican nonbinary freelance illustrator who loves to use shapes, color, and texture in my work. I have worked for fantastic companies such Nickelodeon, Nick Jr, Sesame Workshop, Illumination, Hasbro, Spin Master, Facebook, Playdots, and more! I was fortunate to co-curate an exhibition at Gallery Nucleus called "Doggy Pile". I am represented by Ash Literary for children's books.

I have created the popular Anxiety Fox character, which sold over 1000 of the "It Will Be Okay" pins. This character helps brings awareness to anxiety order, an illness that I have to face every day. The character raised over $260,000 on Kickstarter and even gained the coveted "Projects We Love" badge. Anxiety Fox is currently being sold at the famous Gallery Nucleus and apparel at WeLoveFine.

When not drawing, I work with Japanese Dog (Nihon Ken) preservation.

Let's Work Together!
