Stephanie Unger’s Art is the Meaning of Cool

Stephanie Unger’s illustrations are just so cool. Printed on both fabric and paper, her art crosses over into fields such as fashion, music, branding, advertising, and editorial.

“Every time I do a different project I learn something new and grow as an artist,” she shared with Lecture in Progress. “I do think having a good balance between personal and commercial projects has been really important. They both inform each other and help with the development of my work.”

“I’ve always loved drawing, but for a brief period, when I was 8, I wanted to be a vet… Then I returned to drawing,” she recalled. “Studying illustration at university was great; it allowed me to meet amazing people with the same interests as me. It really took me out of my comfort zone and opened my eyes to different ways of approaching projects and situations. I wouldn’t have learnt these if I’d just gone straight into freelancing. For me personally, they were also some of my hardest years. I left pretty thick-skinned, which has helped me be more confident in the type of art I want to produce.”
