is an illustrator based in New York City. An alumni of the School of Visual Arts and a native of China, Yao Xiao has special interests in antique objects, hand lettering, vintage cabaret, and absurd science fiction with a flair of whimsy. Her personal work depicts a decadent visual world where internalized unspoken sentiments take physical form in surreal situations. Because of her unique touch and wide span of interest, she has been invited to work on one-of-a-kind projects such as the 20 Year Anniversary timeline for SXSW Interactive Festival, distilling twenty years of tech innovation history in a single spread, as well as impressing tens of thousands of fans with the cover artwork for pop diva Katy Perry’s 2014 hit single ‘Dark Horse.’ She has created beautiful graphics for editorial print publications, pop music record covers, concert posters, and book covers.

is an Iowa born, New York City based illustrator whose widely varied work you've probably seen as caricatures in Entertainment Weekly
, as toy collectibles for Hasbro, or as fashion illustration for Glamour Magazine.
She has also styled animation backgrounds for commercials, branded products in Japan, and had her work displayed in marquee lights over Broadway. Her early obsessions with Lite Brite, discotheques (and dance in general) as well as a previous career in graphic design have all helped to inform the crisp, color-happy look of her graceful style. Kirsten has exhibited her work in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Tokyo, and currently resides in Manhattan with her husband and two black cats, Romulus and Remus.
