Anna Marie Coronado

“Charts and Graphs for work! And all I hear in my head is Kerry saying ‘more charts and graphs’ during Ad Workshop class.”


Jill De Haan

Lettering is such a beautiful way to express yourself. Exploring the depths of your style, creativity and voice is something I think every person can benefit from. I crack up when I see my work from a few years ago. There were times when I thought I’d just find a new hobby and others when I felt I’d really created something special and both experiences always pushed me to evolve and do better. I’m so grateful for the art of lettering and for the career that I’ve built from it. One of the unexpected benefits I’ve gotten from lettering is the wonderful community. Everyone is so positive and encouraging and I’m endlessly inspired by their beautiful work. It is for that reason that I would love to enter @homsweethom ‘s #letterwest scholarship challenge. I know there will be a ton of incredible entries but I figured I’d give it a shot! Here’s hoping I get to spend some quality time with my fellow lettering folk!” ❤️❤️

“Holy smokes, first mural done! And have a leg up on the next two thanks to help from my amaze sisters! Thanks @missyhealyturner and @libbykleyn 😇😇 for staying up late with me!”

“I could flower-doodle absolutely all day. Or all night in this case.” #6hourslater #hallofbreakfast @ Hall of Breakfast

“Great night at Monster Drawing Rally at Kimball Art Center with Park City Summit County Arts Council. Fun to participate as one of the artists and have our work go to great causes! Artwork was hung in plastic and taped to the wall for people to buy.”


Magen Mitchell & Nick Burke

“The Helikon Gallery & Studios Nerd Out! show opens today! We have a couple of plaques and a bunch of jewelry in the show so be sure to swing by if you’re in Denver.”

“This is a corresponding surface pattern to my cover photo. I’m planning on doing several more mostly because I feel like I’ve hit on a color palette I really like.”

INK FRIENDS – MORE INTERESTING THAN MOST!

Wizard World Comic Con in Las Vegas

Magen & NIck in LV

“The cast of the ‘Evil Dead The Musical’ in Las Vegas took a photo with us! They were a really nice group and we don’t usually take selfies so everyone walked away happy.” ~ Magen Mitchell 

Meanwhile at the FanX Comic Con in SLC…

Alissa Hicks

“I had fun meeting everyone at the fallout group photo, seeing George Takei as he passed by us in the hall and seeing new/old friends.” ~ Alissa Hicks

Matt Page

“It was a bust. I lost money. I am filled with regret.” And later that same day… “It wasn’t the most successful show I’ve done, but I came away inspired and have a lot of ideas to make the rest of the shows I do this year even better. But most importantly I had a lot of fun and bought some awesome new toys for my collection.”~ Matt Page

Austin Record

”Erica Carroll was an amazing person to meet. She is very sincere and loved getting answers about what I thought of ‘Supernatural.’” ~ Austin Record

Keith Beard

”First time going to a comic com with my family. (Jonas– Halo sword, Liam – Blue Mask, and Gram – Halo costume) Unsurprisingly, no one knew who All-mighty Glob was.” ~ Keith Beard and sons

Eliz Brown's kids

“My kids, Kyle Peterson and Josaphine Green. We had a great time. These events get better every time. Artist Alley is where it’s at for merch. There are so many talented people! Also if you get your kids hooked on being a geek they will never have money for drugs!”~ Elizabeth Brown

ALUMNI NEWS: Best of Utah Arts 2015

OniBodhiNecklace

From Salt Lake City Weekly:
BEST GEEKY ADORNMENT
Obake Style

Formed out of the artistic collaboration between married artists Nick Burke and Magen Mitchell, the two have taken their love for anime, monsters, Japanese culture and pure geekdom to make these badass handcrafted and painted jewelry pieces. Everything from necklaces to earrings to pins can be found in their shop, featuring unique designs not found anywhere else — and most of them for a limited time, as their inventory tends to get plundered during conventions.

To see more “pure geekdom” go to:

From Craft Lake City:

“The Craft Lake City DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Festival was formed in 2009 by Angela H. Brown, editor and publisher of SLUG Magazine (Salt Lake UnderGround), as a way to showcase local DIY (do it yourself) culture.

Since then, Craft Lake City has expanded the DIY Festival to become the state’s largest, local-centric, two-day arts festival, with over 200 local artisans, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Building, two stages for musical and dance performances, local food vendors, food trucks and hosting over 40,000 festival attendees.

Furthermore, the organization seeks to enhance Utah’s DIY arts culture by broadening the definition of “craft”  to encompass all things handmade – including craft food, STEM and DIY engineers (electronic makers).”
