About

Hello! My name is Nala Jaedyn Wu, and I am a proud queer trans illustrator of color currently doing freelance in the TTRPG industry. I specialize in fantasy illustration, character design, conceptual fashion design, and worldbuilding!

Through my work, I aim to advocate for diversity in order to increase the positive and meaningful representation of minority groups in all media. While my interests vary greatly, I believe this brings a unique perspective to all the projects I work on, no matter what industry. Besides art, I also love creative writing, voice acting, and playing TTRPG’s!
