Hi, I’m Delaney

I am a Chicago-based freelance illustrator, designer, and writer, originally from Philadelphia. I started writing and drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil, and really haven’t stopped since. I’ve also added bar trivia, dogs, and wine to my interests.

I discovered my love for visual storytelling while in NYC for school studying illustration and writing. I earned my B.F.A. in Illustration from Parsons the New School for Design, and my B.A. in Poetry from Eugene Lang College.

This led to a series of marketing roles in book publishing and the tech startup space as a designer and copywriter, most recently at dscout and HarperCollins Children’s Books. After 8+ years of NYC living, I moved to Chicago for some work life balance, and to finally afford an apartment that allowed dogs. I’ve been in Chicago since August 2016 and freelancing full time since October 2018.

I am available for commissions and other freelance opportunities. Use the form below or shoot me an email at delaneygibbons@gmail.com!
