Victo Ngai is an illustrator from Hong Kong, currently residing in New York, having studied at Rhode Island School of Design, New York. Her work looks like a wood block print, or a Hokusai painting, but it is actually all done digitally. She seems to be able to translate everything into her own visual language, even when the material she has to illustrate can be quite dry, such as in the financial editorials of Plansponsor magazine. She has worked with Chris Buzelli and his wife Soojin, who is an art director, and has had a good experience with this. I love her use of colour, and her ability to tell a story in such an original way.
