Whitecliffe Alumni Judy Chan, 2006 BFA (Graphic Design major) has recently launched a website for the illustration studio she created with her partner Keith-Yin Sun. Folk art, native crafts, vintage prints, antique objects, nature, and animals inspire the illustrations. The site is called Studio Tipi. Chan and her husband have recently won the UK D&AD awards, which celebrates and nurtures outstanding work in design and advertising. Chan was also awarded a merit in the latest 3x3 Professional Illustration Show. 3x3 is the first United States magazine devoted entirely to the art of contemporary illustration. Their mission is to spotlight the best International artists working today and encourage a new focus on the use of illustration by the advertising and design communities.
While making a successful living in the commercial world Chan is also trying to dedicate some of her time to drawing and painting. Chan’s first solo art exhibition opened on July 29 in Edmonton, Canada at the Sideshow Gallery.
