Shawn hails from sprawling Austin, Texas. His creative career started early, drawing his favorite X-Men in elementary school. It eventually blossomed into photoshopping high school teachers, and the subsequent trips to the principal’s office to discuss why that sort of thing is inappropriate.
The mission of Artists for Education hit close to home, as a father and husband whose wife teaches elementary school science. It’s a challenge to achieve and maintain a child’s engagement in a world full of stale posters. Good design is a means to delight and inspire the bright minds who will be running our world someday.
