Mariah Llanes


My name is Mariah Llanes and I am a Filipino-Canadian freelance illustrator based in Toronto with a love for colour and all things humorous. Some days, you can find me watching Korean dramas and eating gummy candies. Feel free to email me with commissions. I'd love to work with you!
