Ping Zhu

Ping Zhu's illustrations are frequently seen in the New York Times and other reputable publications, but also some questionable ones. She is a graduate of ArtCenter and gave tours there as a work-study job. In 2013, she won the ADC Young Guns award for being simultaneously young and talented. Though she is no longer eligible for "30 Under 30" accolades, her goal in life is to create work that will ideally age well like a fine wine. Or even an okay wine. Her first book, The Strange Birds of Flannery O'Connor, A Life, published in June 2020.
