My first introduction to Jared Chapman was a tweet from @icreature broadcasting a strong recommendation to follow the hilarious twitter antics of @jaredchapman. So, I did—and yeah, Don Clark was right, Jared’s wit is understated and clever. He’s also an unbelievably nice guy with whom we had the pleasure of meeting with our last Sunday in Austin for huevos rancheros and coffee. Jared’s illustrations are quite distinct, having his own special touch of hand drawn lines and a designer’s eye for graphic texture and pattern. Comb through Jared’s flickr account and you’ll find a wealth of inspiring work and some great little self portraits that match his brand of humor.
