“A husband, father, hockey fan, sci-fi geek, and graphic designer living in my hometown of Redlands, California. I have a deep love of vintage styled typography, along with all of the ornate aesthetics of that unique era. From the circulation department of a publishing company, to Art Director for Outdoor Photographer Magazine, to designing wedding stationery for, the past twenty-five years as a graphic designer have been full of exciting opportunities. Hopefully my art can bring you as much joy as it has for me.” Eric
