Joyce Wan

Award-winning author-illustrator JOYCE WAN designed her first greeting card when she was in first grade for a city-wide greeting card design contest. The design won first place and was subsequently sold through a major department store chain. Twenty years later, that design would inspire a design studio called Wanart whose products featuring Joyce’s designs are now sold worldwide. Joyce also teaches courses on greeting card design and art licensing at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Joyce is inspired by Japanese pop culture, modern architecture, and things that make her smile.

Joyce  was Reach Out and Read of Greater New York’s 2015 Mills-Tannenbaum Award recipient.

Diana writes:  There are SO MANY reasons to march today. Stand with: women, dreamers, transgender people, scientists, public schools and public libraries, national parks, reproductive justice, disabled people... Basically, if you have any empathy and care for your fellow human beings, join the @womensmarch. • Unfortunately I have to work, but I’m there in spirit. • I haven’t had time to create new art, but this #illustration is still appropriate. • #signofresistance #womensmarch #womenwhodraw #womenwithpencils #womensrights #togetherwerise #feministart #womenofillustration #dianatoledano #reproductiverights #plannedparenthood Happy weekend!
