Artist Feature – Adalisa Zarate


Adalisa Zarate is a Mexican artist who has loved drawing since she was a little girl. While the Mexican industry isn’t exactly strong, she has always looked towards the internet to market her work on an international basis. She started working professionally as a comic artist at age 17 and is writing and illustrating two webcomics.

Did you go to art school or are you self-taught?
Self taught, mostly, but I did two semesters of Graphic Design before changing majors to English literature.

What are your favorite things to draw?
Complex outfits! Even if later I am regretting it 😀

What are your least favorite things to draw?
Anything goreish-painful looking.

What are your preferred tools of the trade?
Photoshop and Copic, mostly.

Are you taking commissions? If so, are there any specific things that you will NOT draw?
Yes, and well. Gore, Torture, and anything that promotes hate are defintely out of the question. Porn is in a one-on-one basis. Somethings I will draw, some others I won’t.

Where can we find you?
My site is calicochimera.com, and you can find me in instagram as luxshinedraws, in twitter as luxshine and in facebook as AdalisaZ
