I used to want to be a manga (japanese comic) artist when I was a kid till I realized I have no talent in drawing… But that left me a ton of Photoshop skills. So I started to make posters for my school clubs, newsletters, designing my own powerpoint presentation (haha). One of my high school teachers asked me if I would ever consider to study design in college… Then I got into a huge fight with my parents and begged them to let me go to an art school since I was determined to study biochemistry. August of 2009, I moved to New York City and started my time at School of Visual Arts.
My plan for graduating was to get a job at Wolff Olins and do branding till I die. But 2 days before my graduation, a lady named Jessica Walsh (partner at Sagmeister & Walsh, I KNOW!) emailed me and asked if I’m interested in coming in for an interview. I graduated on a Thursday, I interviewed on a Friday and I started my job at Sagmeister & Walsh the Monday after. (I had 2 days vacation.)
Big fan of internships. I learned everything from my internship at Pentagram with the legendary Paula Scher. I remember the first time I saw how a PRO works, the sweat on my back was… But that pushed me to work so much harder to catch up. One thing I loved about my time with Paula is that she never treated me like an intern, I had my own projects and the same timeline as the rest of the team. So I had to train myself to catch up. I’m currently looking for interns for my studio Dazzle as well. (and it’s paid!)
I draw dicks a lot. I’m very passionate about them. Currently finishing up a project I’ve been working on for the past 2 years drawing superheroes’ penis. (SUPERCOCKS)
Find a boyfriend and live happily ever after.
