• Angel M. Alvarez was born in Miami, Florida where he began drawing at an early age. He specializes in children’s illustration; his work reflects an interest in visual storytelling and humorous characters. In 2015, Angel was selected by Simon and Schuster Art Director as the Florida SCBWI rising kite winner for illustration. He is currently completing a Masters in Fine Arts in Illustration at the University of Hartford Low Residency MFA program.

    His biggest inspiration is his son Gabriel, who often appears in his artwork.


  • I put a lot of emphasis on storytelling by creating narratives using whimsical expressive characters.  I seek to give the viewer a moment of happiness or draw an emotional response from the audience when viewing my work.
