Hi! I'm
Caroline Hanlon


I was born in Washington, DC in 1995, and grew up in Maryland - where you can still find me happily exploring. 

I'm a Summa Cum Laude alumni from Savannah College of Art and Design with both my Bachelor's and Master's in Illustration, with also a focus in Animation.​ I'm influenced by everyday life and the world surrounding me. My work is filled with whimsicalness, with a hint of an underlying reality. 

When I'm not illustrating, I'm usually eating food, knitting, walking about or teaching.

I'm currently represented by Inky Illustration Agency. If you have any other inquiries, please send a hello to:

Well This Might Help 

Q: Any tips for budding Illustrators?

A: Be professional! Also don’t compare yourself to others, focus on what you want to draw and do it.


Q: Have you always wanted to be an artist?

A: Actually, no. When I was younger, I was very much interested in different occupations such as being an interior designer, pianist, and even at one point - a meteorologist.


Q: What things in your studio could you not live without?

A: I could not live without my laptop, paper, drawing utensils, books, and my cat.

Q: Can you tell us about your process?

A: I first start with research, I learn about what I’m drawing to make sure that it makes sense and is accurate. I then do a word bubble which I come up with different words that best represent the concept I’m conveying. After I find a good selection of words, I come up with really sketchy thumbnails. I then draw my favorite thumbnails into a pencil line drawing. And finally, I scan those line drawings in and illustrate them digitally.
