First ever sketchXchange presenters: Jolby
Jolby is a collaborative design and illustration studio based in Portland, Oregon. Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols began their partnership in 2005 after meeting at the Art Institute in San Diego. They combine their talents as Art Directors, Designers and Illustrators, utilizing their experience from working within agencies over the course of their careers. The two have exhibited their illustrations in galleries all over the world and have produced award-winning designs for clients including Disney, Intel, T-Mobile, Pitchfork and AIGA. They try to achieve two goals within the work they create:
"Tell a memorable story" and "make people smile".
WHAT IS SKETCHXCHANGE:
A chance to peep into the sketchbooks of some of our favorite local illustrators. Hear what inspires their work and learn about the process they use to create. You'll bring your own sketchbook and mingle with other participants, have a beverage, and draw in a few sketchbooks. There are no rules, no themes (unless you have one for your book) just pens, pencils, sketchbooks, and friends. This isn't a slide show event, guest illustrators will be sharing their actual sketchbooks and you'll have an opportunity to purchase some of their work.
So come join us for an intimate night amongst friends, drawing. If you come to enough sketchXchanges you could potentially have a whole sketchbook filled with illustrations by many people in our community. One lucky participant will even get a drawing done in their sketchbook by the guest illustrator! Yay!
