The Other Art Fair

Brooklyn: Meet our Thursday Illustrator-in-Residence Ludi Leiva

As part of the exciting programming this year at The Other Art Fair Brooklyn (Nov. 8-11, Brooklyn Expo Center), we will be featuring a different Illustrator-in-Residence everyday in our Illustration Corner Project, presented by Moleskine.

Meet Ludi Leiva, our Thursday illustrator-in-residence. Ludi will be custom illustrating bookmarks for The Other Art Fair attendees. In today’s digital-first world, analog items such as bookmarks are reminiscent relics of times past. Using ink and simple lines, the artist will create a personalized design on each bookmark for attendees to utilize while reading their next paperback.
