"I grew up on comics. It's pretty much what started it all for me, the art, the dynamism, the exaggeration of body parts, I loved it all." Once friends found out that Justin could draw, he was drawing their tattoos, their pets, and ended up doing a lot of free designs for local bands. This lead to freelancing, which eventually lead to landing a full time graphic design job. Justin's favorite artists growing up (and still to this day) are James Jean, Geoff Darrow, Joe Mad!, Mike Giant, Mike Mignola and Jim Phillips.
We had the honor of partnering with Justin to create the second print in our Beauty & His Beasts series — Leviathan. After collaborating throughout the initial design process, we now have an original Leviathan Woodcut rendered as a hand-carved relief print available in our shop. Additionally we've collaborated with Justin on some Pop-Character Journals, which you can also find in our shop.
