Family Life- NYT Book Review Cover 

Victo Ngai

This is the second time I illustrated for author Akhil Sharma’s writing. The first one was for his New Yorker short story “We didn’t like him”.  I have always loved the beautiful melanchonia in his work.

Family Life is about an immigrant family from India living in New York, with 2 children. One of the brothers, Birju, suffers from brain damage from a swimming pool accident. This incident not only impairs Birju, but also his parents. They are blinded with grief and neglects to provide the nurture and attention the younger brother Ajay needs. Check out the book review by Sonali Deraniyagala here

What I tried to capture in this image is how the pool has segregated and orphaned Ajay from the rest of the family. I curl my toes when I am trying to endure something painful, so I added that detail. 

Big thanks to AD Nicholas Blechman for this great project! Look for it in the Sunday paper!

supersheepskin asked you:

Can you please share some process work or incomplete works? I’m fascinated by your work, it’s very impressive!

Of course! Thanks, I’m flattered. I think I’ll make a few of these posts.
These sketches were for an article that got axed in Fortune magazine, about technology in the fashion industry. I did one of a girl with pixelated clothing, and one of a high heel wedge as a QR code. The story got killed so I don’t know which one they would’ve used but I think it was leaning toward the QR code.
Real talk though, someone should make that 8-bit clutch with the new notification pop up. I’d get a laugh out of it.

DIVERGENT
Victo Ngai
I was really excited being contacted to do the new IMAX FANFIX™ poster of Divergent, a new movie based on the international best seller of the same title by Veronica Roth. Check out the gif of the process above ( I do hope it loads properly and sorry for the shitty quality, tumblr has a 1MB size cap!)
 I love the story, especially how Tris and other faction transfers break out of their social labels and confinements to pursue truth, dreams and ambition. This resonates with me as Art was not considered a very proper/respected career choice in Chinese society and there was much voice of opposition from my family when I decided to attend art school.  
I wanted to capture the scene of Tris and Four jumping off a moving train as it not only represents the courage required to become a Dauntless, it also symbolized the leap from their old faction and life, a decision they cannot go back on. The three birds soaring above were inspired by Tris’s collar bone tattoo, which symbolized the three family members she left behind.
The poster has been getting some love by USAToday and LATimes!
Big thanks to Debi Struzan, Katie Tibbs, Desirae Jones, my agent Morgan Gaynin, Inc and all the nice people at Summit!
