Nice to meet you.

I'm Laura O'Brien. I grew up in Spokane, WA, but moved to Seattle after college to pursue my career in graphic design and art. Since then, I've gathered a diverse collection of experiences that include designing websites for construction companies, helping self-published authors bring their visions to life, painting portraits of clients' loved ones, and starting my online business. 

When I'm not designing, I'm playing video games, reading comics, drawing, and hanging out with other people's dogs.

Testimonials

Laura is a joy to work with. She’s creative, responsive, professional, and does great work. We use her as our illustrator, and she’s pretty much fearless; I’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink at her, from elephants to statues to complicated set ups such as, “show several bosses making pancakes while employees look on with approval”. She’s never once told me she couldn’t do something, and always hits it out of the park. I highly recommend her.

Laura designed my iphone cover of a beloved movie character and also created a special cartoon strip of my mother’s favorite hobby (knitting) that we were able to print onto a tote bag for her knitting supplies!
— Maria Torres
Laura created the graphic for our improv team, a homeless Napoleon Bonaparte inside a shopping cart as if it were a ship with balloons. It was beautiful. It cured my existential dread temporarily.
— Matthew McKinney
Laura designed our logo for our used furniture store. A great update to our older one. She also designed our store’s website. Great job! Very happy with both.

Laura drew me an octopus on a bicycle at [Spokane] Comicon once. I just asked her for it with no warning and she totally delivered above and beyond.
