The Happy & Serious Illustrations of Kris Mukai




I was immediately drawn to Kris Mukai’s work in the latest issue of The New Yorker, and when I discovered that she also makes animated GIFS of her characters I became a fan for life. The best part about Kris is her versatility, she can go from creating a really goofy anime caricature of Notorious BIG to a seriously detailed commercial illustration for the film Dogtooth. Zine fans will love her self-published comic strips like “Ghost Factory” which involves a cat and bear doing whacky antics like breaking into a factory to find a ghost.
