Meet Our Judges: Jing Wei, Illustrator

Welcome to the thirteenth annual 3x3 International Illustration Awards, over the next several weeks we will be introducing you to our international jury of art directors, designers, publishers and illustrators.

Jing Wei is a Chinese-born, California-raised person who makes illustrations for a living. She was born in Shenyang, China, and moved to California with her family when she was seven. She’s still very much influenced by Chinese cinema—Wong Kar-Wai, Edward Yang and enjoys the printmaking process as it forces her to make decisions and edit her work.

Jing received her BFA in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her first big break came a week before graduation when her first piece got published: a cover for Plansponsor magazine, art directed by SooJin Buzelli. Moving to New York in the summer of 2008, she taught Mandarin to babies part-time which she says gave her a great way to exercise a different part of her brain and to loosen up.

Some of her recent clients include Adobe, Bloomberg, The New Yorker, NPR, Herman Miller, Target and The Wythe Hotel. Print Magazine named her on of their 2012 New Visual Artists.

Jing is currently based in Brooklyn, and works out of a sunny studio in the Pencil Factory building. She is also the brand illustrator for Etsy and a visiting professor at Pratt Institute.

Jing will be judging our professional categories.
