Victo Ngai is a Los Angeles-based illustrator from Hong Kong. “Victo” is neither a boy nor a typo, but a nickname derived from Victoria—a leftover from the British colonization.
Ngai’s work has appeared in books, newspapers, magazines, advertisements, and animations. Among her many clients are The New York Times, The New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, General Electric, Lufthansa, Johnnie Walker, Apple, IMAX, MTA Art and Design, McDonald’s, and Tor Forge.
Ngai has received numerous honors, including Forbes 30 Under 30, The Society of News Design, The Society of Publications Designers, Communication Arts, Spectrum Fantastic, and the Society of Illustrators of New York. She’s a current nominee for the Hugo, Locus, and Chesley awards.
