Alumni Highlight / Kelsey Zigmund’s Sodashoppe Punk

This month, MFA alum Kelsey Zigmund, ’14, will be featured at Chicago’s Village Tap, in a show entitled “Sodashoppe Punk.” Zigmund also sat for a lively interview by Carlyn Hill of Threadless, a site which offers Zigmund’s work for purchase, printed on men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel.

According to Zigmund, her concept of Sodashoppe Punk was inspired by the “hyperbolic, raw emotion of the music” of all-girl bands of the 1960s, and the aesthetic styles of the “1950s biker/greaser archetype.” The work is full of bold blocks of neon color, expressive lines, and eclectic personality.

Zigmund is now a freelance illustrator based in Chicago. She illustrates for editorials, and creates graphics for a diverse range of applications from product design to films.

Sodashoppe Punk will be on view from August 27-30.
