Emily Rutherford (aka “Emi”) is a senior illustrator attending the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD). Born and raised in the city of Greenbay Wisconsin, just living outside the Lambeau Field! Although a cheese lover, she doesn't consider herself a cheese head. Growing up with mainly men around the house, it's inevitable that sports were always around her. She still enjoys watching sports as it's entertaining to watch men with huge proportions run and hit each other like bowling balls to pins. Emi considers herself a homebody but has found new joys in living in the city of Milwaukee by herself.
When it comes to work and illustrating she enjoys working with other people. “I hate working retail and customer service” as she feels it is not as productive and team oriented as working with a close group under a project. Emi mainly focuses on digital painting and character designs. She would like to work in the entertainment business over freelance as she is worried about the lack of insurance and consistency. Nonetheless, Emi has high hopes.
In the future, Emi would like to stay in the city of Milwaukee a bit longer after school. She says she met many wonderful people that are a part of her life now. She doesn't want to leave the loving community of Milwaukee just yet.
In the end, Emi wants to see herself being famous for her work and already has a following to prove so. She is on youtube with her own webtoon series and a respectable following on instagram as well. Emily Rutherford is a kind, hardworking, and genuine individual and an artist to look out for in the future.
