Mahogany Gibbs is an illustrator living in Johnson City and Manhattan, New York. As a child, she was always interested and inspired heavily by comics, cartoons, and manga and wanted to continue and follow her passion. After graduating high school and graduating from SUNY BROOME with an Associate's in Communications, Mahogany joined the students at SUNY Oswego. With her BFA in hand, she plans to become an art teacher and continue to sell her merchandise at conventions.
I was always fascinated by the concept of fantasy stories, as well as the fun style and airy-ness of cartoons, manga, and anime. It was something that I enjoyed consuming and pursuing to make. My personal works, I feel, are what represents me better than any words I can say, really. People always look at me in a different light when they view my art. It makes me have an easier time expressing myself. It helps me connect to others easier.
My illustrations and my styles show my use and knowledge of color theory. They show a pretty dynamic range of color pallets as well as a lot of character illustrations. I work mainly in digital, character creation, and comic creation, which are my favorite areas of interest in art.
