Utopia by Victo Ngai
is a NY based illustrator from Hong Kong, graduated from
Rhode Island School of Design. "Victo" is not a boy nor a typo, but a
nickname derived from Victoria - a leftover from the British colonization.
Every year Dellas Graphic launches a promo calendar project called the Frogfolio which led to tons of award-winning pieces in the past 16 years. The past talents include Brad Holland, Etienne Delessert, Chris Buzelli, Yuko Shimizu, Sam Weber, Sam Bosma, Jillian Tamaki, Bill Mayer, Ellen Weinstein, Joohee Yoon.etc. It's a great honor to have my name be part of the artists I highly admire.
The subject matter is completely open (as long as there is a frog in the picture), so I took full advantage and had tons of fun working on this piece.
