02 GIF Queen
In 2016, I started proliferating GIFs, leading to my Obama Mic Drop GIF being named the #1 GIF of the year. My work focused on pop culture, current events, and women. I gained some traction and landed freelance gigs with New York Fashion Week, Little Caesars, and NBC News among others. The only problem with GIFs is that they take forever to make and are easy for others to steal.
I switched my attention to illustration because I wanted to focus on the details. I liked how New Yorker illustrations made you go ‘hmmm’. I wanted my illustrations to highlight the high-low nature of life and carry nuance. One minute you’re shoveling McDonald’s down your throat and the next you’re watching a concert at Carnegie Hall.
