Christina Chung is a Brooklyn based illustrator who describes her nationality as Taiwanese-Hongkonger-American. Her clients include The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, Scientific American, Science Magazine, NPR, Abrams Books, Penguin Random House, and Lucasfilm, among others.

Her illustrations, often in a line and fill approach, use restrained palettes and carefully controlled value relationships to imbue complex drawings with harmony and mood. Her images invite you in to gradually reveal their thoughtful narrative elements.

Chung appears to work out her ideas with sketches in traditional media before moving to digital for the final illustration. There is a description and walk through of her process on the site of her artists representative, Richard Solomon.
