Joel Martin Jung
Joel had spent most of his life with his mind immersed in a sketchbook. Growing up being the fourth out of five kids he learned quickly to entertain himself while his parents were busy running the other siblings around to various activities. Drawing was an activity that was easy to do on the move. Once he started he never stopped. As he got older, interests in comic books and the skateboarding culture only fueled the fire. Joel continued to hone his skills post high school and enrolled in Boise State University, studying under famed illustrator Bill Carman. After earning his BFA, Joel moved to the Seattle area where he enjoys working in the Graphic Design field along with all of the perks the Seattle area has to offer.
Joel has worked professionally as an established Graphic Designer in a growing marketing firm as well as a freelance, creating logos for businesses located all over Idaho and Washington. His illustrations have been published in magazines and featured on album covers for northwest based hip-hop artists. He has also found success in designing t-shirts based on local sports themes. This success propelled him to help visually create NorthwesTees.
When Joel isn't at the skatepark, or watching the Mariners blow another save, he is available for commissions. Just drop a line on the Contact page.
Thanks for hanging out a while and hope to talk to you soon!
