Illustrator Abbey Lossing would like nothing more than to light up your face. Her brightly colored illustrations and GIFs portray the daily struggles of modern day life in a humorous, happy-go-lucky, kind of ways.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Abbey Lossing is a staff illustrator and animator for Vice News, as well as a freelance illustrator and designer. With clients that include Variety Magazine, The New York Times, and even Google, its little wonder this talented illustrator enjoys a good laugh.
In an interview for Spindle Magazine Lossing said that she’s inspired by: “the satisfaction I get from finishing an assignment.” According to her, she uses “the momentum from my day job to inspire my personal work and freelance gigs. I’m also motivated by my peers; I’ve been able to work with a lot of talented people, and seeing them create things brings me joy and encourages me to do the same.”
And when asked what advice she has for aspiring illustrators she said: “the main thing I would say is to constantly be making the type of work that you want to get paid for. Don’t just let it sit in the closet, or in a folder on your computer, you need to put it out in the world (ie the internet)”.
