ABOUT ME

My name is Dezi Sienty. I am a freelance illustrator, designer, editor, and letterer specializing in comic books.

My goal is to constantly learn, improve, and create.

Like most artist I started drawing at an early age. I devoured “how to draw” books, everything from Hogarth and Bridgeman to “How to Draw the Marvel Way” and Andrew Loomis. I was passionate about sequential storytelling and decided to get my BFA in Cartooning/Illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York. I constantly strive for improvement and excellence in my work by seeking out new ways to improve my pictorial storytelling and draftsmanship. My artistic journey so far has allowed me to express myself with many different creative projects, meet my artistic heroes, and has even allowed me to live in Italy for a year to study and see the artwork of the great masters.

Going forward I am committed to creating exciting, entertaining and pertinent work for our time in a variety of mediums for many different clients. I look forward to collaborations, to bringing not only my own visions to life but also to contribute my knowledge and skills to hopefully elevate other creative individual's projects. I will continue to improve and put my whole heart into this profession and make my best capable work.
