About a year and a half ago, a group of fierce and notable women illustrators gathered to participate in the women's march as "The Pen and Ink Brigade". We marched again a year later, and today we are joining forces once more, this time to collaborate and create art which we are selling to raise money to donate to VoteRiders an organization that is working to get out the vote for the critical November midterm elections. Our goal?
A democratic congress and senate.
T U R N T H E T I D E V O T E B L U E !
To that end, we have created blue waves. You can buy the art on pins and postcards and all the proceeds will be donated to VoteRiders.
Byun is a Korean Illustrator and Comics Artist. She grew up in the United States, Korea and Japan. Moving around a lot as a child and exploring new places had a profound influence on her work. Byun loves to paint magical scenes full of enchantment—hidden places, strange creatures, unopened letters, candy-colored skies, twinkling moonlight and faraway dream worlds.
She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her work has appeared in numerous galleries and magazines including The New York Times. Her portfolio received both Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators’ Portfolio Award and the Tomie dePaola Illustration Award.
Her first book Dream Friends, published by Penguin Random House, was highly praised by New York Times and Amazon. She illustrated the popular children’s book Little Baby Buttercup written by Linda Ashman. Byun’s third picture book, Millie’s Missing Yawn, which she wrote and illustrated, was published in 2018 by Pavilion Books. While working on various projects she is currently developing her fourth picture book for Penguin Random House.
She lives and works happily in Brooklyn, New York.
