ABOUT JAMIE STROUD
Graduated from SVA with a BFA degree, and FIT with a MA in Illustration. I have been freelancing since 1998 doing mostly editorial illustrations, magazine designs, and advertising design.
I teach illustration and design at local colleges and universities.
I write many of my stories as well as illustrate them. My primary choice of medium is pen and ink with digital color.
I also have a wide range of interests that include travel, film, history, sports and cooking, which I believe helps me to be well rounded and open to new ideas.
I enjoy my work, my family and the outdoors.
It was the sweetness and humor that attracted me to children books growing up. So it is important to put that in every piece I create. My primary choice of medium is pen and ink with digital color, but I also work with oils and gouache. As an adjunct professor and former art director I enjoy working in a collaborative environment. For meeting deadlines, following guidelines, and creating professional artwork call me.
