About the Artist

Philomena 'Mena' Baldwin is an active digital artist who specializes in creating and drawing characters. Her tools of choice are the digital drawing tablet and desktop. She is also traditionally trained in 2D mediums and most often uses ink and watercolor.

Mena received her BFA degree at LSU in Digital Art, with minors in AVATAR and Art History. At LSU, she concentrated her studies on 2D art, film, and 3D modelling. There she created two prototype games: "Dysphoria," a solo developed horror game & "Dweeb McDermitt," an virtual reality game created with a team of talented student artists and programmers. 

 

Mena's first place pieces featured at the Texas Crab Festival two years in a row. The original pieces were auctioned for charity. In her time as a graphic designer, she created many logos used for companies, organizations, and events in South-East Texas and Northwest Austin. 

She is currently working on her self-published comic RE: Witchblade and her self-made business Humble Frog Illustrations.
