Alexandra Winthrop is a tattoo artist and colored pencil illustrator based out of Chicago’s northwest side. Her artwork, heavily inspired by equal doses of natural history and the supernatural, manifests creatures and revenants on a spectrum from humorous to unhallowed. Trilobites that crawl forth from past ire, inexplicably haunted Halloween candy, and skeletal heralds of dire omens are all lovingly rendered with meticulous detail and a rich palette.
