Sara Marquez is a Manila-bred, New York-based illustrator who is thoroughly obsessed with color. She believes that while her beloved Manila gave her roots, New York has given her wings, and that the colors of both cities shine through in her work. 

Sara is the creator of SARANOVELA, the illustrated adventures on love, life, and (plenty of) sex in the city. What began as a comic strip in 2012 has since blossomed and grown into a full-fledged fashion and travel illustration business.

All illustrations are hand drawn using a combination of watercolor markers and colored pencils. All designs are original, unless otherwise stated.

For custom portraits, commissions and collaborations, please email Sara at sara@saranovela.com.
