Dylan Mierzwinski is an illustrator and educator living in the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix, Arizona. Inspired by vintage floral sheets, inky print making, and a heavy dose of nostalgia, her world is comprised of rosy cheeked and cheeky characters, bold and sometimes clashing color palettes, and flora and fauna of all shapes. As a self taught artist and sewist herself (she is a proud bag lady), Dylan loves to lend encouragement and experience to others trying their hand at creativity, and has grown to be a top teacher on Skillshare. Her work is recognized for its unique color, deft line work, and balance of fun with functional. She enjoys a hybrid workflow that utilizes both analog (pens, markers, and paint) and digital (photoshop, illustrator, procreate) components.
In her spare time, the honorary senior citizen (dubbed by her grandmas bowling team) loves a good mystery, wearing leggings as pants, putting stamps on letters, waving at dogs, and being a general homebody.
This is 2nd collection for Dylan and asks you to politely remove your rational adult cap in favor of your cool imagination sunglasses. Playground whisks you away to a land where the world is our friend and oyster. Whether its rosy cheeked characters playing hide and seek with furry pals in tall flowers, drawing your own constellations in the sky next to your napping space cat, or tossing your sneakers over the tallest beanstalk.
