My name is Kelsey Wroten and I work as a freelance illustrator and comics artist. I'm a Kansas City native currently living in Brooklyn, NY. I have worked with clients like The New York Times, The New Yorker, Nike, Lucky Peach, Lenny, Nick Magazine, Hershey, Cicada, Warby Parker, Vice, Bust and Bitch magazine. I also have been self publishing comics under the name Jukebox Comix since 2008. My work has won several awards including 3 Society of Illustrators Student awards, an AIGA award, 3 Gold circle awards, an ACP cartooning award, and a Jay Kennedy National Cartooning Award finalist nomination. I love coffee, craft beer, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 

I am currently working on a graphic novel with Uncivilized Books slated to come out in 2018.

I hope to work together sometime! If that sounds like a good idea you can reach me at my email

or I can be reached by telephone
