Hello! I'm Stephanie Bral, illustrator, animation aficionado, pun enthusiast, amateur cook, and animal lover. I have moved around a bit, but I have lived in Iowa most of my life. From the days I doodled in class to my desire to pursue a career in illustration, art has always been a driving force in my life and I'm constantly looking for ways to challenge myself with it. I always strive for my best and listen to feedback. I'm inspired by the children's books that I grew up with like the Little Critter series and the works of animation studios like Studio Ghibli, Disney, and Studio Trigger. The little time I have not dedicated to drawing is spent reading graphic novels and webcomics, watching cartoons, and petting dogs.

I am currently available for freelance work. If you want to keep up with my sketches, works-in-progress, and recent work, follow me on my Instagram, Facebook, or blog!


“Stephanie is an extremely talented designer. After outlining my brief to her, she followed it and then delivered two designs for me which were above my expectations. Strongly recommend you use this designer! Thanks Steph!” -Chris D.

"Stephanie did an amazing job on the art for my game. I was hesitant at first as this was my first project but her punctuality and openness made her the perfect choice. She was able to bring all my ideas to life and added the perfect little touches to all of them. If anyone out there is looking to have their ideas brought to life she will be able to without a problem. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for an artist for any project." -Irving D.
