Young American illustrator Jenny Zych has a great visual sensibility

I came across Jenny Zych’s work thanks to Rookie founder Tavi Gevinson who Tweeted about her talents a couple of weeks ago. She only graduated from The School of Visual Arts in New York in 2013 but already she’s built an eclectic portfolio of work, both under her own name and her alter-ego Jenny Knifefight.

Clients include The New York Times, Samsung and Time Out New York and she’s clearly not afraid to experiment with different styles. I’m less enamoured with some of the grimier, VICE-y style imagery but I adore the gentler, more subtle and sillier work which shows off her draughtsmanship and her wry sense of humour.
