Fernando Gallegos is a Long Beach artist born and raised. He is heavily inspired by the human form and always searching to evoke the feeling of movement and emotion. He loves the power of the brain, to take a simple stroke of color on paper and piece it together to an image with depth and feeling. He has illustrated many projects for Sadie Girl Press including the entire yearbook sections of Cadence Collective Anthology: Year One and Year Two, the cover of The Unnamed Algorithm, the cover and illustrations for bar napkins for beginners and The Language I Was Broken In: a Sadie Girl Press Sampler. He has also contributed art and poetry to our sister press, Lucid Moose Lit, in the anthologies Gutters & Alleyways: Perspectives on Poverty and Struggle, Like A Girl: The Pre-Show!
