About Alena Lane

Alena Lane is a freelance artist, illustrator, and graphic designer.

In addition to doing regular commission artwork, Alena has illustrated a number of short comics that have appeared in assorted anthologies, as well as illustrations for tabletop RPG campaign settings and adventures. She is a pop-culture and comic book aficionado who extensively draws on superhero and supervillain mythology for inspiration in her personal illustrative work.

Alena has also worked extensively in graphic design and marketing.

Alena graduated cum laude with a degree in Studio Arts from Williams College in 2011. Her background is in traditional 2D media, the principles of which she has adapted to working digitally.

When she isn’t at her desk, Alena enjoys baking, tabletop gaming, listening to audiobooks, exploring the nearby New England coastline, and curling up in a nest of blankets with a cup of tea and a good comic book.
