Joe has a bachelor degree in Art and Design, majoring in Graphic Design, from the Auckland Institute of Technology.
Each illustration he creates begins as a sketch on his Wacom Bamboo tablet in the application Photoshop. With the main forms developed, he moves into Illustrator to work in vector graphics. These are then distressed for a more tactile look and feel, and he adds his own signature halftone texture.
Using minimal line work and a restrained colour palette, the strength in Joe’s work lies in its simplicity. It’s elegant, warm and modern, with a playful sense of fun.
