Alicia Souza has been referred to as a ‘happiness illustrator’ for the snippets of happy incidents, funny conversations or daily life musings she draws. She’s added it to her designation ever since as ‘commercial illustrator’ sounded rather dodgy! She’s been drawing professionally for just under a decade and has hundreds of products manufactured from her drawings through the studio she runs. Alicia was born and brought up in the Middle East and currently works and lives in Bengaluru with her husband, dog, guinea pig and lots of pencils. She writes her own author’s bio. It’s not a skill she’s terribly great at.
