Baj is an author and freelance creative. Her graphic design roots go back to 2003, to typography and collage experiments in Microsoft PowerPoint. After publishing her first book in 2018, Baj began supplementing writing with designing and selling novelty merchandise and part-time client work.
She works almost exclusively with digital mediums, Affinity Designer and Procreate being her most favored. She loves imperfect hand-lettering, stylistic art, and primitive, doodle-style line work. Most of her inspiration stems from quirky pop culture dating back decades, midcentury illustration (Edith Head, Aurelius Battaglia, Mary Blair), Disney movies, and whimsical artists she admires passively online.
Baj is a book addict, music connoisseur, and self-proclaimed geek. Sweatpants and snacks are among her favorite things.
She resides in East Texas with her husband, Mark, and their two Chorkies. RDB is Baj and Mark's brainchild.
