Homepage Oh! Mai Mai! STILL LIFE Thinking for a Living™ The Jealous Curator Illustrator Amber Vittoria challenges stereotypes in her elaborately posed drawings | It's Nice That New York-based illustrator and artist Amber Vittoria’s work is focused on non-traditional, or non-idealised, representations of the female form. Her characters appear in elaborate poses, with jiggly limbs, big thighs and prickly body hair; as exaggerated but essentially more accurate portrayals of women’s bodies. It’s a stylistic tendency of Amber’s work that has kept us coming back to work over the years, whether it’s self-initiated projects or commissions for the likes of The New York Times and Gucci. To best display her use of form and colour, the illustrator’s final pieces balance a digital and analogue process — blocking in shapes digitally before printing out the forms and working with brush pens; intentionally balancing a vivid, inviting colour palette with more serious, challenging subject matter. Along with her commissioned illustration, Amber maintains a personal practice that informs her client work.
