Hello Traveler! My name is Victoria Balbes and I illustrate colorful, epic, and absurd characters for fantasy card games.

After I graduated from Washington University in Saint Louis with a B.D. in Architecture, I stuck around in Saint Louis working as an illustrator for KRJ and Stuckenschneider Decoration and Design. After developing games at local game jams, I transitioned into doing freelance card illustration for games and housing illustration for Berkshire Hathaway. I've also had the opportunity to showcase my work in local galleries like the Webster Arts Gallery and Art Saint Louis. When I'm not doodling dragons, I rock climb, volunteer at a House Rabbit Society, and read Warhammer 40k novels. Feel free to contact me at Victoria@balbes.com for further commission information or to see more illustration work.
