Neiko Ng . Quirky Children’s Illustration
There is something a little mid century about the beautiful work of Neiko Ng. An air of Mary Blair or perhaps something I can’t quite put my finger on, but it’s got that familiarity and in a good way.
Originally from Macao, China, Neiko is presently studying Illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, USA. She has made some lovely card designs which are available from her Etsy Store, alongside a range of prints. Her favourite medium is gouache and paper. She told me ” I like fashion drawing, paper cut art, book art, children oriented illustration, printmaking..etc. I am still exploring different styles/ techniques and trying to be a better artist.”
She has a steady hand for creating intricate cut outs too, just look at these.
A great eye for water colour and can even create pretty amazing architectural layouts. This girl has unstoppable talent !
A few of her book illustrations.
We’ve been chatting by email for a few weeks and decided to do a surprise Art Swop with one another. I sent her some of my original work and notebooks, cards etc and today I got this bulging illustrated envelope from San Francisco in the post today…. how very exciting.
Inside there were some fab tiny magnets to decorate my fridge, a card and three amazing prints of her artwork.
I’ll have to get these framed. How much they made me smile. Thanks Neiko, and I hope we will be seeing a lot more of her work in the not too distant future.
If any other illustrators / artists should wish to do an Art Swop, please drop me a line here , and I’ll feature it on my blog.
