MegaGlam® is the umbrella brand for kHyal’s product design, surface and fashion design, illustration and art.
MegaGlam was launched to overarch kHyal’s character design explosion and the product lines of art, design and fashion they have spawned since 2010 when she first created the leader of the pack — a pink, mischievous weather-loving squirrel aptly named The Weather sKwirl.
kHyal drew a digital comic featuring The Weather sKwirl™ every single day for two years straight. The original blog can be found HERE.
MegaGlam also includes lifestyle sub-brands MegaGlam Action Apparel™ featuring Super Fake Cult™, I Do What I Want™, Cake Pony™ and REJECTwear™ and a product line that has been featured at Art Basel Miami/ Miami Arts Week, Frieze Art Week New York, Armory Arts Week; and pop-up and gallery events throughout the US, Europe and Asia.
kHyal’s original designs have been featured in The New York Times’ T Magazine, Nylon, HBO, Vice News, FASHION, Gothamist, FOX News, CBS and NBC evening news, and CBS Sunday Morning. Her work was chosen by Kelly Cutrone of America’s Top Model as a favorite for an art-as-fashion exhibition and corresponding fashion show. And, when heavy-hitting songwriter, Diane Warren, was up for a Grammy Award for a hit song she wrote for Lady Gaga, she commissioned kHyal to create a custom look. MegaGlam art and products have been featured at P!Q Grand Central Terminal and Rockefeller Center–New York, Universal Walk–Orlando and Ceasar’s Palace–Las Vegas, Con Artist Collective—New York and EGGO Arte–Buenos Aires. kHyal has also been a featured artist with P!Q at New York Comic Con.

(We’ve downsized the online store after releasing dozens of exclusive products to focus on custom work — check back for updates!) Take a tour of her art at kHyal.net.
