Noah Grigni (they/them) is a freelance illustrator and nonbinary trans man living in Boston. Influenced by queer futurism and magical realism, Noah uses art to envision a radically inclusive future and uplift voices fighting for change. Their art ranges from vibrant children’s book illustrations, to meticulous anatomical drawings, to "artivist" work for non-profits. Noah graduated from Lesley University in 2018, with a BFA in illustration and a minor in creative writing.
Noah's art is a celebration of trans joy and softness, in the face of systemic violence. Noah believes in art as a means of healing from trauma and manifesting change, at both individual and collective scales. And, they believe in the radical power of using art to create comfort in an uncomfortable world. Noah is interested in independent creative projects that promote action towards mutual liberation.
Noah is the illustrator of It Feels Good To Be Yourself by Theresa Thorn, The Every Body Book by Rachel Simon, The Ship We Built by Lexie Bean, and The Gender Identity Workbook For Kids by Kelly Storck. Their past clients include Macmillan, Penguin Random House, Audible, Jessica Kingsley Publishers, New Harbinger Press, Beacon Press, Berklee College of Music, Boston Pride, Southern Fried Queer Pride, Transmasculinidad, Float Boston, The Verb Hotel, and others.
