I’m Jordan "orjdan” Pellegrini

I'm an artist and illustrator working around Chicago & Northwest Indiana.

I live my life very agnostically; even with the best preparation, I find that life is often very mystifying. It’s allowed me to develop an appreciation for absurdism, magical realism, and the narrative qualities of my strangest dreams. In my work, I play with these ideas and what it means for us to be human, especially a woman of the late 20th and early 21st century in the US. I draw much of my inspiration from Kaneoya Sachiko, Ito Junji, David Lynch, and Aubrey Beardsley.
