Dogs We Dig #9: Amber Vittoria
We’ve had an intercontinental love affair with old mate Amber Vittoria since JFO’s conception. It’s about time we gave this ledgeridoo a shout-out.
Amber is a New York City native (and, we’ve decided, an honorary Aussie) who has been quietly smashing the patriarchy with her subversive illustrations. Bright and bold catches the eye, but it’s the underlying themes Amber focuses on which has held the attention of so many. Her very specific style straddles the fine line between robust and carefree, replete with both whimsy and power. She examines physical identity, especially “the ideal female form”, exploring what this means in the 21st century.
Amber was one of the first people to get in touch with Just Fuck Off after our launch, and we jumped at the chance to collaborate. The result: the ever-popular Pray for My Haters pin. This little cutie will have some siblings in the future, so keep your eyes peeled.
Amber is an in-house designer for Avon and has worked with Teen Vogue, Man Repeller and her dream collaborator, The New York Times. She’s produced another collab pin with Potted Co, and has had her artwork transformed into earrings by Concrete Jellyfish. Amber is one hell of a human.
