“Amaretto”

Allison Theus is an illustrator and concept artist specializing in character and creature design. She has an avid love for world-building and a very needy cat. Allison has worked for Retro Studios, ArtCraft Entertainment and Vigil Games and has a B.F.A. and a Master of Entertainment Technology degree from Carnegie Mellon. Her book, A Book of Mostly Creatures, features beasts, monsters, aliens and other strange, fantastical creatures.

Allison describes art as a problem-solving playground and says it expresses what words cannot. She especially loves ink and crowquill pen work but appreciates the accessibility and versatility of digital. She’s been drawing as long as she can remember and says her style lends itself best to dark fantasy and sci-fi world-building. The complexity of nature in all its various iterations and taxonomies is a huge inspiration for Allison’s work and she says, more importantly, it helps her appreciate this life.

Expedition Art is lucky to have this Austin artist participating in the “In Danger” Project, and hope to have her work in many more!
