With clean lines and a flat, limited color palette, Emily Fromm uses a style reminiscent of vintage cartoons and comic books to illustrate contemporary scenes. Having been raised in the outskirts of Los Angeles, she was heavily influenced by the over-the-top yet seedy aesthetic of California and Nevada, specifically neon signs, gigantic mascot constructions, and roadside attractions. She applies a graphic style that is familiar and nostalgic to these settings, incorporating imagery that is mundane and often low brow, to contrast these grandiose scenes with everyday life.
Emily Fromm is an active artist and illustrator in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2013, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from San Francisco State University. She currently lives and works near Ocean Beach in San Francisco, California.
