Stay a while and listen!


Hi, I’m Brad

I’m an Artist/Illustrator based out of Columbus Ohio and my inspiration comes from the trips I take from the city to the more rural areas of southern Ohio.

Rock outcroppings from the Hocking Hills area mix with the graffiti laden streets of downtown Columbus.  Both areas have their own scenes, characters and backgrounds, and they sometimes get mixed in the process of making.

Brad received his BFA in Art & Technology at Ohio State University and previously worked at Shout Out Loud Prints, providing art separations

Shadowbox art and digital prints

Each shadowbox piece has a custom frame that I handmake and paint myself.  Inner drawings start out as graphite on paper, which are then scanned, colored digitally, and printed on cardstock.  

 All digital prints are made using archival ink, ensuring the piece’s color wont fade over time. Printed on heavy cardstock paper with speckles – each print is sturdy and somewhat unique
Click on the piece to see more info about each, including price, dimensions, etc

I take commissions!

Want a Shadowbox print of your own?  Send me a message and let me know what you had in mind!  All pieces come with a frame and are ready to hang with a metal sawtooth hanger

Let's face it - balancing a job and trying to provide enough funds for your art is hard enough as it is. Thankfully, organizations like GCAC exist to provide help for people who are just starting out, seasoned pro's and anyone in between. Not only do they provide monetary grants (which helped me get my spiffy professional printer ;)), but they also provide calls to artists, lists of studio space and much more.
