Sophie Argetsinger has been drawing animals, monsters, and imaginary worlds since childhood. Through her illustrations, she enjoys connecting to nature and animals, as well as escaping into other worlds, and allows the viewer to do the same. She particularly likes drawing monsters and other ‘undesirable’ creatures in an accessible and relatable way.

Sophie graduated from Smith College and is currently working as an illustrator and book designer in Holyoke, Massachusetts. She is most recently the author/illustrator of Protectors Nos. 1–10: An Illustrated Field Guide.
