Elizabeth Rock is an editorial illustrator and freelance designer. She is almost entirely unknown for her unique body of work, a collection which veers between impenetrable allegorical representations of vague concepts and miniscule, illegible drawings done most commonly on cocktail napkins, paper placemats, and the small, torn-off corners of things.
