The (Freelancing) Painted Ladiez

The Painted Ladiez are Lia Khayami (AD) and Diana Castillo (CW).
What gets us going: Advertising, Concept Development, Art Direction, Writing, Interactive, Social, Illustration, Digital, Selling Ideas, and Being Loud.

The Painted Ladiez bonded in ad school after tagging glory holes for an HIV awareness campaign. Then it was time to form a creative powerhouse.

They took their weird and sometimes awkward brand of humor on a worldwide tour through San Francisco, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Madrid. After a few months of "seeing other people" they quickly learned it was a mistake. In fact, they're meant for each other (awwww T_T). 

Lia kicks it in Brooklyn pickling vegetables, binging on post-apocalyptic comic books, and drawing snake people.

Diana spends her time creating new dance moves in underground clubs, hoarding Pokémon, and collecting creepy dolls. 

They also enjoy sappy/disturbing psychological indie films, spiking their early-morning coffee with Baileys, breaking the bank on designer toys, and inappropriate [everything] jokes.
