Alisha Richardson is a digital and traditional artist who enjoys character design and concept art. When working traditionally, Alisha is fond of ink, markers, and occasionally acrylic paints. Her artwork is inspired by dark nature and fantasy elements with a focus on characters. Her illustrations are often influenced by her numerous other creative interests, including cosplaying, sewing, creating Special FX make-up looks, sculpting, and wearing J-fashion.
Alisha is a homeschooler currently in her senior year. She has been attending Kalamazoo Valley Community College throughout high school, where she has been studying animation. She hopes to transfer to Kendall College of Art and Design in the future to pursue a BA in illustration. Her most notable achievements include winning Best in Show at KVCC’s 2018 Digital Art Showcase, being awarded a portfolio scholarship to KCAD, and being GRCC’s 2020/2021 Cover Artist winner.
Alisha will be making her artist debut at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con selling fan-art prints of comic-book and anime characters, as well as prints of her own original concepts.
