Jason is often asked to emulate a specific genre of illustration, such as movie posters, pulp covers or retro style advertising. His fondness for pop culture, especially movies and toys often creep into his work.

About Derrick Castle
of Straw Castle
For years, Derrick has been developing his own unique vision in the design community, experimenting with a variety of methods for creating reproducible art and design. His favorite, he found, is block printing, a primitive form of relief printing where an image is hand-carved into a material such as wood or linoleum, then coated with a thin layer of ink, and pressed to paper stock or textiles to create the relief print.
“The hand-crafted nature of block printing, with all its imperfections, gives each print so much character,” says Derrick. “People want products created by artisans, not cheap, mass-produced designs. The booming popularity of the craft beer and distilling movement as well as local crafts and artists prove that people are drawn to products made with passion and care. That’s why I believe my style of design resonates with people.”

Designer Tyler Deeb has an amazing story to tell you about how he turned a lack of freelance work into a life changing event. Tyler puts the same amount of effort into his business practices as he does into the artwork and products that his company Misc. Goods Co. produces and that's saying a lot because his artwork is flawless and beyond well thought out.
David Cook aka BONETHROWER is a illustrator based in Los Angeles who loves to use repetition as way to problem solve the puzzle pieces in his mind. Influenced by skateboarding, punk rock and psychedelic imagery, BONETHROWER proficiently creates hand drawn illustrations ranging from the obscene to the downright disturbing. He shares with us how being colorblind helped create his unique color pallet and really tries to explain how he sees his artwork as problem solving.
