Welcome to to my portfolio, Jessica Emmett Illustrations. I invite you to explore the different sections to learn more about my art.
I’m a UK illustrator, artist & designer toy maker based in Singapore.
I have been a freelance artist for 11 years. I started in photography & film until I discovered a love for illustration in 2010. I committed to it full time in 2013. See a selection on my work on the [Illustration] page.
I work both digitally and traditionally in ink/watercolour with a comic/cartoon style. More recently exploring design toys.
I am inspired by cuteness but driven by creative exploration. My style lends itself to comics and children’s illustration. However I have worked on all kinds of interesting projects included online comics, bespoke personal pieces, film promotion, magazine spreads, children’s education books, t-shirt design and even academic research image abstracts. I welcome inquires on the [Contact] page.
Archived Transracial Adoption Art
I am a Hong Kong/Vietnamese adoptee which influenced much of my early work. While I moved away from adoption as the main subject of my work, I have left much of my previous work on my site, archived, as a resource for people in the community. You can read more about [My Adoption Story].
