    Victo Ngai is not short of accolades, having won two gold medals from the Society of Illustrators, as well as being featured on the prestigious Forbes 2014 30 under 30: Art & Style list.

    Born in Hong Kong, Ngai graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and works primarily as an editorial illustrator. Now based in New York, she has illustrated for newspapers, magazines, books and advertising campaigns. Ngai’s client list is incredible, previously working with the likes of New York Times and the New Yorker, IMAX, Folio Society, Somerest House London, Lufthansa Airline and General Electric.

    Victo Ngai’s style, though it does vary quite a bit, is often intricate and rhythmic. Incorporating pattern and repetition, many of her pieces remind me of Medieval and Japanese tapestries. I really love her colours choices for the outline of the main figures. It does a wonderful job of distinguishing the figure, whilst at the same time, unifying it with an often complex background.

    Hop over to her website for more work. Whilst there, do not forget to watch her short interviews with Like Knows Like and Forge Magazine.

    Jasper Wong is an artist/illustrator hailing from in Hawai‘i. His work has been exhibited world-wide and published in magazines including Communication Arts, Hi-Fructose, Complex, Vice, and Juxtapoz. Mr. Wong also founded the Hong Kong gallery, Above Second and another in Honolulu called Loft in Space. Not stopping there, Jasper Wong is also creator and lead director of Pow Wow Hawaii, a non-profit organization of contemporary artists, and a community art centre called Lana Lane Studios, which is a combination of private studio spaces and a fully functional art school for the youth of Hawai‘i.

    With all these great endeavours aside, Jasper Wong’s illustration style is an unmatched interpretation of pop-culture with an Asian influence. Recurring characters, such as Mr. T and Chairman Mao, and themes, such as amputation and rainbows, creative unsettling but humours narratives. His more recent work, using paint, are much more frantic and expressive but thankfully equally as strange. Be sure to check out more of his work on his website.
