About Abbey Lossing

Abbey Lossing is an illustrator and animator based in Brooklyn, NY. She grew up in Granville, Ohio, and relocated to NYC after attaining a degree in Illustration from Syracuse University. Having worked as a staff illustrator at BuzzFeed and then Vice News she took the leap into full-time freelance in 2017. Since then she hasworked with Facebook, Google, Target, The New York Times and The Washington Post. Working in Photoshop from initial sketch right to the coloured final, Abbey uses a Cintiq to maintain the presence of her hand in her digital work. Often inspired by fashion and textiles, she loves to integrate patterns into her work and when she's not working digitally she loves to revisit her background in screen printing and get her hands dirty. If she's not creating art, Abbey can usually be found walking the sidewalks of NYC, seeking out new food she's never tried.
