Hello, I'm Erica
It's so nice to meet you
Location: Minneapolis, MN
I grew up in Colorado Springs, CO where I started drawing as a way of passing time. It didn’t take long for what was a hobby to evolve into a passion that quickly became a powerful driving force. I decided to attend Kansas City Art Institute before moving to Minneapolis where I worked various roles as a graphic designer for print advertising and screen printed apparel. When I decided to pursue creating artwork as my living it was a natural union with making music posters due to my love of illustration, hand lettering, screen printing, and music. In 2012 I made my first music poster and released my first screen print.
Since then I have created posters, album art, t-shirts, identity, print advertisements, visual identities, and various merchandise for a variety of clients including Surly Brewing, QBP/Whisky Parts Co, Indeed Brewing, Chrome Industries, The Mountain Goats, Baroness, The Black Keys, Dave Matthews Band, The Tallest Man On Earth, and many more.
Influences from folklore and history can be found throughout my work and continue to inspire me. When I’m not working in my studio I can be found playing with my adorable kitty minions, biking or running, and exploring nature.
