Jon has been creating pictures since he was nine years old, when his father took him to a Red Lobster and he scrawled all over the menu. Although those were some of his strongest pieces, he still thinks the best is yet to come. Some of his clients include Adult Swim, Airbnb, Bloomberg Businessweek, Chronicle Books, Cloudburst Brewing, CNN, Esquire, Intercom, Kodiak Cakes, Mother Jones, The Nation, New York Observer, The Poetry Foundation, Quarto Press, The San Francisco Chronicle, Scholastic, SF Giants, Stripe, Time, Washington Post, and Variety. Jon lives and works in San Francisco.
Artist, illustrator and educator Jon Stich encourages you to see everyday objects in a new light in this daily practice class. You'll sketch using gouache, brush pens, and graphite pencils. After establishing a familiarity with the tools, color-mixing, and finding shadows, you'll progress to illustrating objects from your day-to-day life. Jon Stich's technical guidance will help you to identify value and compositional elements, and by working daily you will establish a routine that is both reflective and exploratory.
