I’m Alicia Mestre Bruce.
First off, my name is a mouthful, so for your convenience, it’s pronounced A-lee-see-a Mess-Tray Brooce. (Deep breath, you’ve got this).
I’m a 29-year-old hobby artist from St. Louis who never imagined I’d find myself deep in the niche of the bookish art world. I think I’ve always had at least two novels and a pen on my person at all times since I learned to read at age 4 – much to the chagrin of any authority figure trying to get me to pay attention.
While this may only be my side hustle, I promise to put my whole self into my work!
I specialize in digital character art, NSFW spice, book-themed designs, and bringing scenes to life.
