A Filipino/Italian illustrator living and working in Berlin.

Favorite subjects to draw center timeless topics such as power, money, science, death, love and fried chicken.
Outside of work you usually find me developing vegan recipes or losing at overcomplicated board games.

My art is a visual journal exploring the intangible facets of this human experience. For me, my art is a tool to connect with both myself & others on a deep human level. Glad to be on this journey with you all!

i thought EOD meant 'end of december'

How to brief an illustrator. I made these for such an important post on my agent’s @handsome_frank website. A must read for anyone commissioning illustrators.

To the person who is telling people that she "launched my career":
Giving someone a job is not the same as supporting or mentoring them. A paycheck is not a gift; it's earned. You hired me because you needed my skills.
I launched myself, sometimes in spite of my leadership.

Anytime a client takes longer than expected to give feedback, I automtically assume they are trying to find a nice way to say that they hate it 😅

Just my axolotls cuddling to brighten up your monday

This weekend’s @NYTmag cover. “The Abortion I Didn’t Have”
Illustration by @hogingkim

I miss when weekends were actual weekends and not “days to finish all the work you couldn’t do during the week due to working all the time.” It’s giving “hell on earth”

Apologies again for haven’t updated my online store forever 😅. Finally here’s a new limited edition with specialty printing for you. “Tetratich”, 35”x17”, will be dropping on Monday Dec 6th 8am PST. Just in time for X’mas! 🎄 🌟 ✨ https://victo-ngai.mysupadupa.com More pics soon!

When clients ask me to take videos of me working on something I don't think they understand how uninteresting the process is haha.

Zoom in, click, zoom out, click, select object, change colour, click, drag path, click, click, click, scroll, click, click, click.
