Lydia Ortiz is an illustrator and designer living in San
Francisco with her two adorable cats and husband in an apartment
filled with plants. She chooses projects that focus on bold
storytelling and image-making to create strong narratives. When she
is not building stories out of LEGO (R) bricks, she draws a lot. In
fact, she makes something for herself every single day, like a
small drawing or a collage, to keep her creativity fresh and
present. Her illustrations have been featured in The New York
Times, The Washington Post, Instagram, and Teen
Michelle Clair works by day to create and produce gift & stationery products, and moonlights as a visual designer. She loves to build things with all sorts of materials, among them wood, fabric, paper, food, and now LEGO (R) bricks. When presented with the objective to build with LEGO bricks without actually connecting them, she was initially mystified and intrigued at the challenge, then thrilled at the opportunity to play all day long! When she is not making things, Michelle likes to hit the hiking trails in the San Francisco Bay Area to admire the visual majesty of the natural world.
"Suffice it to say, there is a lot of visual punnery...perfect
for the LEGO brand."
