Jing Wei is a Chinese-born, Brooklyn based illustrator. Her work takes on a variety of applications, from magazine editorials to one-off objects to large scale murals. Jing was previously the illustration director at Etsy, but is now running wild and free as a full-time freelancer. Most days, she can be found in her Greenpoint studio, eating sandwiches and drawing chubby people.
Moma is worth a visit, but for a more lively Art experience ánd for free, one should visit Chelsea. A colony of 400 Art Galleries, showing the best in contemporary art. Running straight through is the high line, a 1 mile long linear park, build on a former railroad-spur, worth the walk.
