Hi there.

I'm designer & illustrator Monique Cucchi. Welcome to my cabinet of curiosities.

According to sources*, I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil. Call it a gateway drug. Since then, I've tried just about every hobby that can be classified as art (and many that can't). Some have stuck. Some haven't.

Drawing remains my oldest and truest friend.

Crooked & Beautiful is your safe place to get weird. Life is hard but sometimes it can be pretty cool and I'd like to use my tiny corner of the internet to spread as much humor, honesty, and skulls as I can.

When I’m not illustrating, designing, or business building, you might find me hanging out with my husband and fur kids, organizing something, painting something black in my house, practicing yoga, running, pelotoning, baking, making jewelry, plunking away at beginner guitar lessons, attending rock shows, performing rock shows in my shower, dying in video games, or drinking with friends.

Check out my latest sketches on Instagram, @crookedandbeautiful.
