Craig Shearon is a multi-disciplinary artist who focuses on illustration, experimenting with many forms, and writes his own thought-provoking stories.
Even though my themes are whimsical, I want to create an experience and a shared sense of realism in my illustrations. When it comes to my creative choices, I appreciate being free to experiment with numerous styles and execute what works best for the brief. I've always enjoyed bringing sophisticated narratives into my work and deconstructing them in the illustrations; sometimes this comes across as cinematic, which is how I see each creation, as an extension of a larger picture. Every project has its own personality, which informs how I interpret the final illustrated work; my passion for design comes into play here as well, as I want to build a more personable relationship with the individuals seeing the artwork.
