Self portrait by the artist

Self portrait by the artist

Hi there! I'm Missy Chimovitz, the Fifty Foot Girl.*

I am an illustrator, designer and doodler. In fact, I've never met a creative medium I didn't like, and I've tried a lot of them: photography, puppetry, animation, printmaking, mural painting, and even stuffed-animal making. (I am a lousy knitter, however.)

I also design and build websites with my husband, Alden Karr, over at Antigravity Studios. We live in a tiny fishing village in Yucatán, Mexico at the mercy of our overlord, a 12-year old Jack Russell terrier named Roosevelt. 

Please drop me a line here for any freelance inquiries, or just say hi!

*Someday over a glass of wine, perhaps I'll tell you how I became the Fifty Foot Girl.
