McCal Joy
Illustration and Fine Art


Hello Friends!

I'm an artist living in the in the city of Fargo, North Dakota, where creators shout “makers gonna make” and huddle around good coffee in the winter.  

As an illustrator that focuses on visual storytelling, I make stories come alive with the use of fun characters and natural elements. I'm from a small town in north MN where lakes around every corner in trees are plentiful. I'm inspired by nature in my work and always seek to portray rich narrative in the stories that I Illustrate. Much of my work can be seen in children's books, novels, magazines, advertisement, and even places you wouldn't expect. My creative career keeps me on my feet, ever growing and eager to explore. 

As we say in Fargo,  “Makers Gonna Make!
