My name is Justin Oltesvig. I have been freelancing as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator for nearly 10 years, and have also worked professionally as an Art Director, Photographer and Teacher. I try to incorporate each of these disciplines into my ever-evolving illustrations and fine art. The emotion evoked by my imagery is what pushes me forward. Whimsical meets Rock and Roll. I have predominately worked in the music industry (Reggae, Rock & HipHop), but have also worked closely with the surf & paddleboard communities, hot rod & lowrider car culture and skateboarding industries. I am originally from the Detroit area, but I have lived in Chicagoland, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, and Miami, Florida. I also lived a short time in Recife, Brazil. I now call Oakland, California my home. I am currently freelancing and teaching, but am open to in-house opportunities, art licensing, and gallery shows.
