RogueSTUDIO is the online portfolio of Mariah Almeida. What’s up? I’m an illustrator, comic book artist, and designer. I grew up between the college town of Amherst, MA, and the hardy northwestern city of Spokane, WA, with many adventures with a college professor of a mother to conferences all over the US and Canada. I was one of those kids in the 90’s who saw a Disney movie (Lion King, to be exact), lived 15 minutes away from an indie comic studio (Mirage Studios in Northampton, MA), and from there I was driven forth by an intense passion to make stories and ideas using visual mediums.

I studied illustration (with focuses in animation and graphic novels) at Ringling College of Art and Design, graduating in 2011.

I currently reside in Spokane, WA, although I have worked with clients all over the US and thanks to the magic of virtual/internet communication, am available to work with people all over this world!

Currently, I am working on expanding my freelance career, focusing on independent comics, gaming, and interactive content delivered via Youtube and other social mediums. I love being an independent creator, and am a firm believer that anyone with the right tools and education, can create a striking visual image, create a fun game, or deliver an entertaining story!

When I’m not busy at  work or my drawing board, I enjoy relaxing in giant libraries/anywhere books can be found, petting my fuzzy cats,  practicing my Japanese, visiting new locations and having new experiences! I am an Enforcer for Penny Arcade’s Penny Arcade Expo (PAX),  having worked at PAX East 2013-2015, and will be at PAX Prime in 2015!

I can also be found on Tumblr, Twitter,Facebook (Either through Rebel Forces or through my art page).
