Michelle Nunnelly is an illustrator, comic book artist, and professional doodler. She moved from Texas to New York City to study Cartooning at the School of Visual Arts, where she was taught by Klaus Janson, Joey Cavalieri, and Walt Simonson.
Originally wanting to become a therapist, Michelle is inspired by Sigmund Freud and Jung’s analysis of archetypes and dreams. She focuses her work around universal symbols that impact people psychologically. Her work also touches on depression and other psychological disorders in order to better understand herself and others.
Michelle recently self-published Ugly, a 16-page comic about a young girl named Ellen who has a hard time adapting to the realities of being different. When not drawing comics she designs stickers, buttons, bookmarks, and prints.
