Joey Chou's Mid-Century-Inspired Illustrations of Your Fave Pop Starlets

Los Angeles-based illustrator Joey Chou creates cheerful, colorful, and whimsical illustrations and animations that are perfect for children's books and movies. The Taiwanese-born artist worked on Hotel Transylvania 2, an animation for Sony Pictures that will come out this fall; illustrated a Little Golden Book called I'm a Ballerina; and drew characters from Frozen in his style for a Japanese children's book, to just name a few of his recent professional projects. 

Chou's works give a heavy nod to a mid-century aesthetic, with patterns, colors, and shapes from that 1950s and 1960s, but he is obviously inspired by pop culture of today. It's fun to see him apply his style to contemporary subjects, like these illustrations of contemporary pop stars Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and Katy Perry.
