Simply stated, Now On View celebrates and showcases the artists of Society6 and their work. Get to know them—and then get lost in their gallery.
Could you introduce yourself?
Hi! My name is Alyssa M. Gonzalez and I’m a little ray of sunshine and I’m currently a graphic designer at Hallmark Cards. I spend the rest of my time doing freelance illustration work.
Current city: Kansas City, Missouri–home of great BBQ!
What’s your process?
It’s all digital drawing with either Photoshop or Procreate. (Many people think I work in Illustrator because of the clean shapes, but if you look closely there is texture. I like the act of drawing more than achieving a perfect shape!)
Why did you make these?
I like to make sunshiney things! Especially now living in a city where the winters are long, this is important to me for my mission to others.
What do people typically say about your work?
A comment I used to get a lot in college, and still get a lot today, is “This is so cute!” I feel if I’ve at least made someone smile or go “awww,” I’ve done my job.
