Baileigh O. Bolten


I am a graduate of Idyllwild Art’s Academy and Ringling College of art and Design with a major in illustration and concentration in comics. I am versed in storyboard, comics, concept, character design and general commercial illustration. Since graduating I have been published in New Type Magazine and “Manga Without Borders” volume 2. I have done advertising and character design for clients and conventions throughout the country and have worked for comic publisher IDW. Currently, I focus full-time on freelance illustration and attend grad school in northern California.

Why do I use a red gryphon to represent my self? In heraldic custom, gules (a term used for the color red) paired with the noble gryphon symbolize courage, perseverance, generosity, and self sacrifice. All qualities I strive for in both my work and everyday life.
