Show & Tell: Jason Sturgill
May 4 2023
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Are you just having lunch, but wish you were having a side of DESIGN KNOWLEDGE with it??? Good news—Show & Tell is back again to fill you full of wisdom from our stellar Spring 2023 lineup!
Join us live on Zoom Thursday, 5/4 at noon Pacific for a talk from Jason Sturgill!
Jason Sturgill is a former graphic designer turned art director and illustrator. He grew up thinking he couldn’t draw and it wasn’t until he was in his 30s that he put the proverbial pencil to paper. Jason unknowingly has always been a fan of illustration from a young age through his fascination with skateboard and album art. This love of art led him to start an online art gallery in 2001 while he was working as an interactive producer at Wieden+Kennedy. His professional career started in advertising in a non creative capacity but after having cancer at the age of 28 he made a concerted effort to switch to design eventually working for Dark Horse Comics and Nike Skateboarding before pivoting into illustration. After working for several years as a professional illustrator Jason found out he had Bipolar 2 disorder and has integrated mental health advocacy in his personal work that he regularly shares through his instagram account. You can check out some of that work by following him at @jgspdx
