Welcome to to my portfolio, Jessica Emmett Studios. I invite you to explore the different sections to learn more about my art.
I’m a UK designer toy maker, illustrator & artist based in Singapore.
I have been a freelance artist for 12 years. I started in photography & film until I discovered a love for [Illustration] in 2010 which I committed to full time in 2013. In 2017 a very natural extension to my illustration was exploring design toys, examples on the [Crafts & Products] page & Instagram.
For illustration, I work both digitally and traditionally with a cute/cartoon or intricate style.
I am inspired by cuteness but driven by creative exploration. Creature design and cute images are my current areas of interest. However I have worked on all kinds of interesting projects included online comics, bespoke personal commissions, film promotion, children’s education books, t-shirt design and even academic research images. 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].
- To top off a great 2018, I was announced as the STGCC 2018 alternative cover competition winner!
- I am blow away to be an honorable mention for the The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance creature competition! The original Dark Crystal film was a massive inspiration so it’s really touching to even have a mention.
- I feel very fortunate to been short listed for the World Illustration Awards (Experimental category)! It’s been a real moment of reflection to think illustration was my path after all =). Good luck to all shortlisted, really inspiring stuff!
