Portland Prints Artist Residency: Jason Sturgill
This city is home to one of the most energetic, thriving, and innovative printmaking scenes in the country. From art schools, artist collectives, entrepreneurs, makers, and suppliers to collectors, galleries, and museums, Portland has become a creative hub for making prints. In conjunction with the current exhibitions featuring artists Andy Warhol and Corita Kent, the Museum is partnering with the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) to host a series of artist residencies.
Jason Sturgill is a freelance illustrator based in Portland, Oregon working on everything from editorial illustrations to apparel graphics, as well as branding & packaging. When he’s not drawing you can find him either teaching illustration and graphic design at Portland State University or at an estate sale hunting for illustrated ephemera with his wife and son. Before drawing became his full time profession he worked as a graphic designer for Nike SB and Nike 6.0 in both apparel and brand design. Jason also spent several years at both Wieden+Kennedy and Dark Horse Comics. Some of his clients include Jamie Oliver Magazine, Poler, The Portland Mercury, The Quiet Life and Widmer Brothers Brewing.
