About Me

She/her | 28 | Illinois


Hi! I'm Alex Lutz, but most people online call me Lutz. I am an illustrator, comic artist, and graphic designer. Much of my work revolves around psychological horror, mental illness, isolation, surrealism, weird humor, and being LGBT.

I write and draw the surreal psychological horror comic Krazy Noodle Massacre.

Some of my interests include typography, retro design, history, forensics, true crime, psychedelia, cassette futurism, horror, nature, and psychology.

I earned a BFA in Painting from UIUC in 2015 and an AAS in Graphic Design from Parkland College in 2020. Resume available upon request.

I have a rescue pitbull named Nora who likes to steal loaves of bread.

I make tie-dyes sometimes.

Thanks for stopping by!
