SIA Inspiration: Victo Ngai

It’s Daenel’s turn to host SIA, and here is her pick:

This is the work of Hong Kong-based illustrator Victo Ngai. Daenel picked it simply because she loves pearls, but what she didn’t know is that I love Victo Ngai – I first came across her illustrations on Tor.com (she works a lot in sci-fi/fantasy) and have been trying to find a piece to feature on SIA, but most of them are very intricate, and as usual, when I find an artist I love, it’s difficult to pick just one! This particular piece is the illustration for the novella “Serving Fish” by Christopher Caldwell, and from what I can find, it’s a retelling of “The Fisherman and the Golden Fish” featuring a drag queen. Doesn’t that sound amazing? And of course, the artwork is gorgeous too.

So put an outfit together, and don’t forget to send it to Daenel (livingoutsidethestacks@gmail.com) by next Tuesday, September 7th. Have fun!
