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 is the recipient of the Mills-Tannenbaum Award for Children’s Literacy from Reach Out and Read of Greater New York which recognizes children’s book authors dedicated to promoting a lifelong love of reading in young children. She was also twice chosen to be featured at the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show which showcases original art from the year’s best children’s books (2011, 2016).

Happy happy art on this dreary NY day from Brooke Smart @brookesmartillustration #wholetthedogsout 🐕 ・・・ Brooke writes: i used to live in Minneapolis, and a couple times every day, there was this guy who would walk by our duplex, casually walking a giant pack of perfectly behaved dogs. I loved it, but my cat loved it even more. She would sit by the window and make those hilarious cat-chirping noises until they had passed. I’ve wanted to paint this scene for years, and finally got my chance! This is my second entry for this year’s #300plates show at Art Access in SLC. 🐶🐶🐶🐱 Scroll to see details. . . . . . . . . . . #woof #meow #illustration #acrylic #acrylicpainting #citizencaninedogwalking #minneapolis #dogpack #doggang #painting #blackandwhite #bubblegum #childrensillustration #catbug #hank #lucy #kidlit #artistsoninstagram #cats #dogs #dogsofinstagram #brookesmart #kidlitart #womenillustrators
