Lisa Anchin is a Brooklyn based illustrator who is rather fond of both hogwash and nonsense. She is easily recognizable by the blue paint streak on her eyebrow, the smudgy ink on her fingers, and the unruly mass of red hair that threatens to attack anyone who gets too close.
Lisa has a handful of degrees and received her most recent, an MFA from the School of Visual Arts' Illustration as Visual Essay program, in 2011. That same year, she won the SCBWI Student Illustrator Scholarship. In 2012 her portfolio was selected for the SCBWI Illustration Mentorship Program.
She is often holed up in her studio stringing words together and compulsively doodling, but she can also be found haunting one of the many cafes of the five boroughs, sitting with a bucket of tea, scribbling in a sketchbook, and wearing a ridiculous hat.
Lisa also blogs on KidLitArtists, home of the SCBWI LA Illustration Portfolio Mentorship Program Winners.
