Now based in Reno, NV, Diane spent the last decade in San Francisco honing her skills and expanding her portfolio since 2009. Diane has established herself as a go-to artist for a wide range of clients, including prestigious companies such as Salesforce, Hasbro Studios, William Morris Endeavor, Skechers USA, and Adobe. Her dedication to delivering exceptional results and exceeding client expectations has earned her a reputation for excellence in the industry.

Diane’s journey as an artist started at the Academy of Art University, where she immersed herself in the world of visual development. Her time there, from 2009 to 2013, allowed her to cultivate a deep understanding of the principles of design and storytelling. Prior to that, she attended the Art Institute of California – San Diego, where she studied graphic design from 2005 to 2007, further enhancing her creative skills.

Diane’s passion for creating captivating narratives extends beyond her freelance work. In 2011, she self-published her first comic book, titled “Dreamwalker,” which she sold at the renowned San Diego Comic Con, as well as various other comic conventions. This early success propelled her career as a comic book artist, leading her to participate in numerous conventions, including Silver Age Comic Con 2023 (her 6th Comic Con), Seattle Emerald City 2012 (her 5th Comic Con), WonderCon 2011, APE Con 2010 in San Francisco, and San Diego Comic Con in both 2010 and 2011.

Additionally, Diane ventured into the realm of children’s books with her project called “Caleb and Willie” in 2014, showcasing her ability to create enchanting illustrations for young readers. In 2015, she embarked on the production of “Northstar Warrior,” a 2D animated short film. As the overseer of a team of 20 talented individuals, including storyboard artists, 2D animators, background artists, and voiceover talent, Diane demonstrated her leadership and creative expertise.

When Diane isn’t bringing stories to life through her artwork, she can be found exploring new techniques, experimenting with different mediums, or immersing herself in traveling and nature. Her love for art fuels her drive to continuously evolve and push the boundaries of her creativity.

Whether it’s breathing life into characters, illustrating captivating scenes, self-publishing comic books, or overseeing animated productions, Diane Pascual’s artistic prowess shines through in every project she undertakes. With a combination of talent, experience, and a passion for storytelling, she is dedicated to delivering exceptional results that surpass expectations and leave a lasting impact on her audience.
