MOCCA Art Festival meet Emily and the Yea Girls


  • MOCCA Art Festival at Metropolitan West 639 West 46th Street New York, NY, 10036 United States
The YEA Girls is a NYC-based studio collective run by a plucky trio of 20-something-year-old illustrators who are ready to take on the world. The artists behind the acronym--Yan Gabriella, Erica De Chavez and Angeli Rafer--met by chance at a networking event, and since then have worked together on exciting collaborative comics and zines. When they're not encouraging each other to push through new illustration projects, the three of them can be found hanging out, drinking copious amounts of tea with snacks and a classic animated film in the background. Also joining this trio is Emily Dahl, an East Coast Illustrator from Bowie Maryland, coming for the festivities in New York.
