Mark Todd graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California in 1993. He lives in Southern California. His new body of work has taken on the form of updated/reworked comic book covers that occupy a space between child like wonderment and an abstract form of contemporary art. A few of his clients include Coca- Cola, MTV, Sony, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and Spin Magazine.
Bwana Spoons is a painter, illustrator and toy designer living in Portland, Oregon. He runs Grass Hut studio/gallery/shop and loves trees, moss, and monsters. Through his many creature creations and swirly environments he has truly created a world of his own.
Martin Ontiveros is a painter, illustrator, toy designer and wizard living in Portland, Oregon. He is part of the Grass Hut Gang. He enjoys metal music and that influence can be seen in his magical pieces executed with a big-bold-bright-clean-crisp style.
Jesse Balmer is an up and coming San Francisco artist. He recently completed the cover illustration for Daestro’s record “Keepers” and has exhibited in numerous shows throughout San Francisco and Southern California. His work employs extremely tight line work filled with often fantastical beings and environments.
