Award-Winning Illustrator Cheyne Gallarde

We have some exciting news to share from Cheyne Gallarde. If you didn't already know Cheyne is an award-winning artist from Hawaii, who has combined his love for Drag Queens, pop art and comic books into one unique style!

He has achieved so much in his career, from winning design awards, being a TED speaker, recently working with the likes of MTV for the VMAs 2019, and LogoTV,  he has many more accomplishments to add to that list. 

He's recently won a National Advertising Award 2019 for his LogoTV art! How amazing is that? He was also the only artist to have work based on Queer representation. “The American Advertising Awards is the industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting nearly 35,000 entries every year in local AAF competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards is to recognise and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.”

Additionally, he was hand-selected by bloggers Tom and Lorenzo to illustrate their book “Legendary Children” which will be published by Penguin Books next month! The cover illustrations (seen below) focus on the 12 most iconic queer figures in history. Find out more here 

Cheyne may even have a few copies at his booth @ DragCon LA, returning on May 1, 2, and 3 2020.

Let us just finish with the fact that Cheyne is named one of 12 Queer artists to watch in 2020 by NBC News!
