Building bridges and telling stories from Toronto to Tokyo - a limitless venture.

Let's create magic together. Say hello at patternsandportraits (at) gmail (dot) com

hello!

I'm Justine Wong, a full-time freelance illustrator based in Toronto and Tokyo. I am also the creator of the project '21 Days in Japan: An Illustrative Study on Japanese Cuisine', consisting of 100 paintings of my meals throughout Japan.

When I am not illustrating, I am a dedicated member of Lunchroom, a creative collective and co-working space based in Toronto where we practice and learn new ways to rebuild the way we cook and eat together.

For any commissions or questions, please contact me at: patternsandportraits@gmail.com
