Victo Ngai is an illustrator, originally from Hong Kong, now based in New York. “Victo” is a nickname for Victoria.
Her clients include: The New Yorker, The New York Times, Sundance Film Festival, Wired, Scientific American, Tor Books, ABRAMS, International Herald Tribune, Utne Reader and a number of other editorial and advertising clients.
She uses a line and color fill style in which the lines themselves are rendered in colors. I don’t know about her actual influences, but I see in her work resonance with European comics artists like François Schuiten and Hergé.
She has a wonderful commend of texture and detail, and a skill at intermixing areas or detail with passages of muted color, accented with brighter areas of focus.
You can view portfolios of her work on her website, BeHance, Tor.com and Morgan Gaynin, Illustration Representatives. You can find additional work, along with preliminaries, sketches and work in progress, on her Tumblr blog.
