Aimee Maroney is from Syracuse, NY is a Freelance Illustrator who studied at Cazenovia College and Syracuse University.
“For as long as I can remember I have always had a pencil or a pen in my hand. As a child I filled reams of paper with doodles and sketches. In school I often was reprimanded for drawing when I should have been paying attention in class. This passion for creating art carried me through college and into adulthood where I have been working to launch a freelance illustration career.”
“I would say that my artistic style varies a bit. I range from cartooning to more representational work, but I tend to choose a consistent subject or theme. What is important to me is to tell a story with my art, whether that narrative comes from another person or from my own imagination. The style I choose is dictated by the story being told. Tales from science fiction, fantasy, fairy tales, mystery and the supernatural are from where I draw my inspiration, but I’ve been influenced by the works of N.C. and Andrew Wyeth, Eyvind Earle, Wallace Wood, and Daniel Clowes.
Aside from self promotional work, my most recent projects have been a book cover design for the e-book “The Last Judges” by Jedidiah Gong, and T-shirt and patch designs for Dark Willy’s Phantasmic Carnival, an online store catering to fans of the sci-fi and horror genres. Currently I am in the early stages of writing a somewhat auto-biographical comic about a young woman struggling to make ends meet in an economic downturn while trying to find an outlet for her artistic talents.”
