Illustration - Lora Bananca

We first came across Lora through our good friends over at Designcollector and our friend Ram Castillo. Her work has a real quality about it with her use in perspectives, compostion, colour and textures. We get a real insight into her life and personality as she pulls from her experiences which is what I believe makes her work so impressive. To view more of her portfolio you can visit it online at

Photography - Valerie Chiang

Born in Taiwan in 1992, Valerie currently resides in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her interest in photography began when she joined the popular photo-sharing website Flickr. What started out as a mere hobby quickly progressed into a passion for fine art and fashion photography.

Photography is the medium Valerie uses as a method of escapism. By applying a mythical, almost enigmatic aesthetic to her work, Valerie always strives to offer viewers an opportunity to stretch their imaginations and form their own stories from her photographs. She incorporates elements of both realism and surrealism into her work, thus creating a world filled with daydreams, nightmares, and everything in between.
