We’ve lately taken to Stephanie Davidson’s illustrations and webcomics. Minimalist, reflective, and in true millennial fashion, her illustrations are highly relatable. And with collaborations with brands like Nike, Apple, Coca Cola, and Snap Chat, people are clearly taking notice.
Born in Hong Kong, grown in Tokyo/Honolulu and based in Brooklyn, NYC, she has graduated with a BFA in Illustration from RISD. “It’s hard to say where I’m from,” she told Les Femmes Folles. “Though it says Hong Kong on my birth certificate and my parents still live in Hawaii, I believe I spent my most formative years in Tokyo. It’s still my favorite city and I feel the need to return every couple of years to re-up on the weird inspiration I get from being there.”
Her mixed background has clearly had an impact on her work, forming her distinct, uber-cool, style. Her advice to other creatives? Find your voice and get your message out there in whatever medium you can. Sounds like a plan.
