Minneapolis-based Designer & Illustrator, Leanna is an ambassador of the outdoors. Urban exploring, patterning, and illustrating hyper-graphic pandemonium in a land where line, form, movement and color reign. Inspired by the sum of everything fun on the planet Earth, Leanna covets neon, hand-lettered signs, Memphis-Milano furniture, gum ball machines, and party favors. Past clients include: i-D Magazine, 3M + Scotch, MPLS Zine, MCAD Alumni, Afternoon Printing, Bad Medicine & more.
Bill´s work is an anecdotal play between illustrated matter, lettering and patterning. Using illustration as an output to recount personal thoughts and experience, these incidents are reanimated through object and character. Although much of what Bill makes is organized and considered, there is typically unparticular space brimming with offbeat patterns. Past clients include: Third Street Brewing, Red Bull, Public Radio International, Kmart, Isthmus Publishing Co., Great Clips, GQ, Corpse Corpse & more.
Wisconsin transplant, Eddie Perrote is an Illustrator and Designer living and working in Minneapolis. Chaos abounds in the vibrantly acidic world of infinite party, a decadent celebration in honor of the imagination. Exploration into the deepest catacombs of the mind - and beyond, yields unexpected and eclectic result. In his final semester at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, past clients include: Nickelodeon, Scotch, 3M, Afends, City Pages, Fricote, Psymun & K.Raydio, Audio Perm, & more.
With the invention of the internet, super phones and the abstract thought of "cloud" data, we´ve enabled our minds to perceive more information, decrease our mental clutter and externalize our memories. Through organizing the brain we present windows into the cerebral world of structure, chaos, habitual patterns, and seemingly infinite layers of content. It´s these informalities that create, vivacious energy, and eccentricities that feed the visual cacophony of information ever gathering within our minds. Scategories is a brain-to-hand gallery show + graphic wonderland of illustration, analog design, and hand-lettering. Come be dazzled by an exaggerated and extravagant landscape of psychedelic flair and twirling thoughts, motivated by the overwhelming desire to organize and decorate.
