Alejo Porras working on a scratchboard


HELLO! My name is Alejo (it’s pronounced ah-LEH-ho) and I’m here to help you.

Chances are, you found this website because you have a book/story you want to publish or you have an article that needs great illustrations to engage with your audience. If that’s so I would love to work with you!

I am open for editorial and publishing projects. Take a look at my portfolio and contact me to work with you.


I wanted to learn all the languages in the world, so I learned to draw.

While growing up in Costa Rica I got the chance to meet people from different countries and backgrounds. I’ve always loved to hear and share experiences with others but I was frustrated when I couldn’t communicate with some of them because of a language barrier. That is until I tasted the power of drawing and I became passionate about becoming a better illustrator/story teller.

The pursuit of that passion brought me to the United States where I earned an M.F.A in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Now, as a professional illustrator, I create conversations, share stories and enable individuals, companies and brands to tell their stories in a compelling and clear way so they can connect with others, no matter the language they speak.

Alejo currently lives in Atlanta, GA where he, his wife, their son, and their cat live happily surrounded by lots plants. He and his wife, Vivian (also an illustrator), own an illustration studio called Two Rivers Creative.
