Victo Ngai, Guest Speaker 2019

A Forbes 30 Under (Art and Style) honoree and Society of Illustrators New York Gold Medalist, Victo Ngai 倪傳婧 (“Victo” is not a boy nor a typo, but a nickname derived from Victoria – a leftover from the British colonization) is a Los Angeles-based illustrator from Hong Kong and graduated from Rhode Island School of Design.

Victo creates illustrations for newspaper and magazines such as the New York Times and the New Yorker, storyboards and art for animations with studios like NBC and Dreamworks, and makes specialized books for publishers such as Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Folio Society, and Macmillan. She works on packaging and advertisement campaigns for Apple, Johnnie Walker, American Express, Lufthansa Airline, and General Electric.

She has also taught at the School of Visual Art New York, the Illustration Academy and gives guest lectures and workshop at universities and conferences, this has become her favorite excuse to visit different cities.

Apart from drawing, Victo’s biggest passions are traveling and eating.

She’s hoping that one day she will save up enough to travel around the world and sample all kinds of cuisines!
