277

So excited to beam in Jim Datz this week! This will be the first time that Jim has talked with Portland State students, so please come with questions about his work. If you are too shy to ask, leave your question in the comments section or tweet them to me!

A little bit about Jim:

Jim datz neither fish nor fowl anna wolf photography

Jim Datz is an Illustrator and Designer whose wandering career path has lead to Brooklyn, where he now lives and works. His work spans disciplines and embodies unburdened optimism and freedom of movement. He sells editioned screenprints, decorated apparel and homegoods in stores and galleries in the US and UK, and his small independent office—Neither Fish Nor Fowl—manages professional projects for clients of all sizes…particularly those who have a similar interest in exceeding market demand for depth, quality and attention to detail.

Hope to see a bunch of PSU faces this Thursday at noon in room 160! YAY! Jim DATZ!!
