Welcome to the wonderfully wacky world of Anna-Marie Jung. The freelance illustrator from Graz, Austria has a hilarious sense of humor that comes through in every one of her works. Inspired by pop culture like cartoons, comic books, movies and computer games, she creates “nerdy” art that features the Internet's most famous superstars like cats, ninjas and zombies.
You can read an in-depth interview conducted with Jung over on Threadless, where she's been a member for over four years. It's an inspiring story that chronicles her journey as a visual storyteller, from publishing her first graphic novel at the young age of 16, to receiving a Fulbright scholarship to get her Masters in Illustration from FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York. (While you're there, check out Threadless' Artist Stories page to learn more about some highly talented modern-day artists.)
Below are some of our favorite illustrations created by Jung. Love all the funny details.
