The latest episode of the interview series “Like Knows Like” features New York-based illustrator Victo Ngai. I’ve followed her work for awhile so it was great to hear her talk about her work (and sing some Backstreet Boys). If you missed it, I previously posted Victo’s work here and here.

Watch the video profile below!
