Tracie Ching is a self-taught illustrator and portrait artist working in Washington, DC. A marriage of old and new, her work translates classic engraving techniques through vector illustration, resulting in the bold cross-hatching style for which she is known.

Creating alternative movie posters for cult classics, Ching made her home in pop-culture showing in galleries such as Spoke Art in San Francisco. She has since grown her portfolio to include key art for clients like Disney, Lionsgate, and Marvel Studios, official portraits for a President and Vice President, editorial illustration, and commercial art, rounding out her dynamic application of creative skill.

Ching’s work has been shown in the Design Museum in London and is in the permanent collection of  The Library of Congress and Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. She is founder and principal mentor of the We Create Mentorship & Grant program.
