Harley and Boss (Andrea Kang and Nathan Jurevicius) – Rhode Island – Zodiac Sign Chosen – Rabbit

Harley & Boss is the collaborative design company between illustrator/designer Andrea Kang and artist Nathan Jurevicius.  Together they design toys, create art shows, installations and limited edition products.

Nathan Jurevicius has worked as a freelance illustrator and artist for many international companies and publications.

His most acclaimed project to date is Scarygirl; the cute but slightly odd little girl who was abandoned late one night and is later found and brought up by a friendly octopus and guided by a mystic rabbit (Bunniguru). The brand since its creation in 2001 has developed an underground following of fans throughout the globe through it’s online game, numerous limited edition vinyl toys, designer products and traveling shows.

In 2004 producer Sophie Byrne of Passion Pictures (best known for its Gorillaz music clips) optioned Scarygirl . The property is now in active script and visual development for an animated feature film.  Nathan has also completed his first graphic novel based on Scarygirl to released by Australia’s leading Independent publisher, Allen and Unwin and Last Gasp in the US.

Toy designer and illustrator Andrea Kang has created her own unique universe of characters and stories referencing child hood memories and folk tales.  After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, she worked for Hasbro Inc
in the Playskool division designing toys for infant/toddler and preschool girls. She is now freelancing and has also started a collective with illustrator Nathan Jurevicius under the moniker ‘Harley & Boss.’ Andrea has shown in galleries across the US and Europe,
