Joy Ang is a freelance illustrator with some nice range: her works hold up digital painting, gouache, and simple line drawings; she can rock the luscious world-building of children’s illustration, the quiet strength of a Cool Lady, and the ultra-chibi-cuteness of a comics persona. Joy lives in Edmonton, Canada, where she’s recently been working on books for clients like Houghton Mifflin and character design for Adventure Time.

A random smattering of some of my favorite Joy Ang pieces:
