I am an illustrator and designer living in Los Angeles. Originally from the Washington DC area, I came out to LA where I graduated from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena. I have worked in the entertainment and media industries for more than 20 years. Now, as the Creative Director for the independent media publisher Popularium, I developed and launched the site’s overall visual identity, and continue creating and overseeing all story illustrations.
My work is influenced by geek culture, fairy tales and myths, and contains touches of surrealism and psychedelia. I immerse myself in these themes, creating images that are just to the left of reality, works that often contain vibrant hues and pops of electric color.
For my latest artwork, sketches and random photos, find me on Instagram @mrsvengsouk. I am also available for freelance illustration, branding, and concept design via the form below.
