It is undeniable that meme accounts on Instagram are hilarious, relatable, and have you tagging your roommates in the comment sections at 3 in the morning. You may think that it can’t possibly get better than photos of Joe Biden ‘pranking’ Trump or Kim Kardashian’s infamous crying face but it can! And it does.
Freelance illustrator, Julie Houts combines the humorous relatability of your favourite meme accounts with illustrations worthy of any couture fashion house. She somehow manages to make the pitfalls of adulthood seem sophisticated and glamorous.
Houts studied Fashion Design at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City and currently designs womenswear at J.Crew. Her illustrations have been featured on websites like Man Repeller, Vogue, Refinery 29, and Style Bop.
