Julie Houts. Remember that name, because it’s worth remembering, one day soon you will know exactly why.  She is living in Brooklyn, working as a womenswear designer at J.Crew. Beyond that, she is a freelance illustrator. Her work is a dazzling concoction of humor, glamour, awkwardness and sass. What’s better than that? It is entirely relatable and an honest breath of fresh air. Looking for a way to get out of a bad date? She has it covered. Pro tips on the art of a selfie? Yep. Social situations that feel equivalent to needles in your eyeballs (and every other part of your body)? Look no further.

Julie Houts recently launched her own website and is selling prints. Definitely check it out for a good time: Then do yourself a favor and follow her instagram account: @jooleeloren.
