If you peeped our 15-second Shoe Cult teaser, you got just a tiny peek into the mind of web designer/illustrator/motion graphics artist/jack-of-all-internet-trades Tara Sinn. The NYC-based artist (known for her trippy, super-saturated artwork) chatted with us about her obsession with the internet, her favorite GIF of the moment, and all the awesome projects she’s working on next.
Esther Kim‘s work bridges the gap between our two favorite things: fashion and art. Growing up between the US and Tokyo, her illustration aesthetic is a unique combination of feminine, stylish, and playful. Clearly, we’re hooked. We sat down with the literary loving artist in an attempt to pick her crazy-creative brain. Oh, and keep an eye out for an upcoming Lessons From The Pros featuring Esther’s work!
In honor of our Instagram dance contest, we tapped Cat to put together some dance jamzzzzzzz. And guess what? She was more than up for it. So get ready to shake something…

She’s tatted, veiled, and wears the shit out of a black beanie. If you didn’t catch the music video, or you just want to see some of the highlights in slow-mo, check out these gifs. Caution: you may end up with a bleach blonde pompadour at the end of this.—Chris
Our web designer Martine has braved James Franco in corn rows and watched rainbows melt, all in the name of enriching our Artsy Fartsy world here at Nasty Gal. This time, she clues us in on GIF artist (yes, it’s a thing) Zoe Burnett—and picks her brain on the important stuff, like screen names and Kid Pix. Plus, because Martine is extra-cool and persuasive, Zoe Burnett crafted two exclusive GIFs just for Nasty Gal (scroll to the bottom of this post to check ’em out).
Make no illusions, there’s nothing cooler than black and white optical prints: checkerboard, houndstooth, spots,
