llew mejia


Textile designer by day and illustrator by night. That’s what I call WORK. Llew Mejia is originally from Mexico but currently lives in Minneapolis and did a lot of traveling between north and south America when he was younger. I think you can definitely see the influence of both cultures in his art. Especially in his illustrations, the use of vibrant colors on his animals and figures is similar in that of Mexican art.

Beautiful work, I’d love to cover my entire house in this wallpaper! Ha!

Inspired by one of my favorite textile designers, Josef Frank, a master of color and composition. Of course I don’t even come close but one can try and learn from a master!

How do you do? What flavor are you?

I’m well. Pop-Rocks Bubblegum.

What do you do and why do you do it?

I draw all day and then I come home and draw some more all night. Because I want to and because I need to.

What would you do if you weren’t doing what you are?

Before going to art school I was set to become a plastic surgeon. I dropped out because the thought of it didn’t interest me anymore.

SUPR NATR (2013) by Llew Mejia. 5.5"x8", 12 2 colored pages. 

This is a limited run of Risograph printed zines by Llew Mejia.

The SUPR NATR zine is volume one of a series of small encyclopedias that will be exploring the occult and natural worlds through a visual lens.

Each one is signed and numbered out of an edition of 50.

Made a pattern to shout out my mother’s maiden country, (Mexico) where the Jaguars still run free in the jungles. I put mini volcanos steaming in there as well, because Mexico is full of them!
