Pinky Weber is an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer based in — you guessed it — Brooklyn.
Along with multiple pieces selected for both Communication Arts and American Illustration this year, she recently made the pages of Sunday's Boston Globe pretty. Her previous work has made its way into several New York City exhibitions, including Trumpocalypse at Sacred Gallery, The Museum of Comic & Cartoon Art Fest, Pop Souk, Space Ninety 8, The Tender Trap, The End is Near Gallery and The Living Gallery — not to mention a cameo in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Employee Art Show. Her professional Rolodex includes clients such as Anheuser-Busch (Bud Light), Kellogg's (Pringles), JR Cigars: The World's Largest Cigar Store, National Geographic, American Express, Time Inc., The Metropolitan Museum of Art, THE WEEK, mental_floss, Gregorys Coffee, Solid Angle, I Feel Like Hillz, SOHO20 Gallery, and The Shakespeare Theatre.
Like many in New York City, she's a transplant, having migrated from San Francisco with a wiener dog in tow — but don't let the West Coast thing get to you! She earned her street cred by graduating from art school as a Dean’s Merit Scholar with a BFA in Illustration from Parsons the New School for Design in '14.
For extra credit, Pinky has joined forces with Scholastic to design and teach illustration courses for New York City high school students. She’s also scoring brownie points as a founding member of the Crybaby Collective — a labor of love that makes her a lot happier than the name might imply.
